and the original survey questions

The project was funded with a federal grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services. Following up on the survey, the LYRASIS consultant will make selected site visits in conjunction with workshops in New Orleans, May 23; Baton Rouge, May 24; Alexandria, May 25; and Shreveport May 26. These workshops will teach staff from cultural heritage institutions how to survey their own collections and provide information on preservation grants available to individual institutions to enhance their preservation practices. Analysis of the web survey results will be used to develop an action plan for future statewide preservation projects. If you would like to attend a workshop contact Laura McLemore, laura.mclemore@lsus.edu, phone 318-797-5378, for more information.
