Preservation in Massachusetts Libraries: The 2 Preservation Priorities

Subscribe and connect with Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners (MBLC) Preservation Specialist Jessica Branco Colati and colleagues around the Commonwealth that work to advance the protection of cultural collections.


Note: We're renovating the Preservation in Massachusetts Libraries guide during Summer 2024. Please bear with us as we add, update, and reorganize MBLC's preservation resources.


Preservation activities:

  1. Ensure safe and stable storage

  2. Improve collection management (i.e., knowing what you have--and where it is)

The interactive chart below provides a general approach to planning preservation projects, split according to their basic function.
