We want to share with you another announcement for the Collections Assessment for Preservation (CAP) program. Applications for the 2019 cycle close this February 1st, 2019. Below I have included Twitter and Facebook links from the American Institute for Conservation (AIC) social media pages and our website that we hope you will share with your constituents and any other institutions that you think may benefit from the CAP program.
The CAP program provides small and mid-size museums with support for a general conservation assessment. The assessment is a study of all the institution's collections, buildings, and building systems, as well as its policies and procedures relating to collections care. The recommendations for collections care can help institutions decide where to invest limited resources. It may also serve as a valuable tool in engaging a board, leadership, and other community partners. Applications are available from November 1st, 2018 through February 1st, 2019.
