>Workshop – Conservation/Preservation Discretionary Grant Writing Workshop

>Date: Friday, October 24, 2008
Time: 10:00 AM – 1:00 PM
Place: Capital District Library Council

Grant Application Workshops will be conducted by the New York State Education Department, New York State Library, Division of Library Development, Conservation/ Preservation Discretionary Grant Program to assist prospective applicants in planning their 2009/2010 applications. The workshop is offered at no cost to participants.

This year the Conservation/Preservation Program will be moving to a web-based application. It is important that applicants attend this workshop to learn more about how this application will work.

The purpose of the New York State Discretionary Grant Program is to encourage the proper care and accessibility of research materials in the State, to promote the use and development of guidelines and standards for conservation/preservation practices, and to support the growth of local and cooperative preservation programs.

The Discretionary Grant Program provides modest financial support for projects that contribute to the preservation of significant research materials in libraries, archives, historical societies and other agencies within the State of New York, whether by conducting surveys, improving collection storage environments, reformatting or treating collections or other preservation activities described in the guidelines.

The workshop will include a review of the general guidelines and a step-by-step review of the instructions for preparing the application. Considerable time will be allowed for questions, and representative examples of successful (and unsuccessful) applications from previous years will be discussed.

Online registration for the workshop, as well as details on the Discretionary Grant program, are available on the NYS Library web site.
