The California State Library recently announced the Cultural Collections Protection Survey, a comprehensive statewide survey of California's archives, galleries, historical societies, libraries, museums and tribal nations. Think of it as a census for California's cultural collections. The goal of the survey is to gather information on the value, importance and condition of California's cultural assets. In doing so, we can support new and more informed policies to ensure they are protected and made accessible to all Californians. Registration for the survey is now open to any collecting institution in California here.
