Our weekly roundup of archives-related news from around the globe


  • The Preservation Self-Assessment Program (PSAP) is now live! The University of Illinois and its project partners are proud to announce that after two years of development and testing, the Preservation Self-Assessment Program is available for use! The PSAP is a free online tool that helps collection managers prioritize efforts to improve conditions of collection materials. Through guided evaluation of items and collections, storage/exhibit environments, and institutional policies, the PSAP produces reports on the factors that impact the health of cultural heritage materials, and defines the points from which to begin care.
