Site Assessment Program
The grant will support professional services for a collections consultant who will come to your organization for a half-day site visit focusing on
a collections related topic. The consultant will discuss various areas
of stewardship with the site including identifying your specific collections issues, suggesting and prioritizing basic steps to improve care of your collections. A written report will follow the consultation.
