This section provides suggestions for some additional preservation planning and management activities. These activities will require additional time, research, and information gathering on your part and are completely optional.
Prepare an overall preservation policy for your institution and/or one or more specific policies for preservation procedures (e.g., environmental monitoring, shelving of collections, security).
Identify a potential preservation grant project. Look at several funder websites, identify one or more potential funders, and print out their guidelines and application forms. Once you have determined the most likely funding source, begin writing the grant proposal.
Prepare a presentation on preserving historical collections for the next board of trustees meeting or design an education program for staff members and/or users that will teach proper collection storage and handling techniques.
