APPLICATION DEADLINE: AUGUST 31, 2016
Does your institution need help with the preservation of and access to your collections?
If so, the State Archives is now soliciting applications for its Traveling Archivist Program (TAP).
TAP provides hands-on preservation assistance to cultural and heritage institutions that house archives, papers, and records at risk of deterioration, neglect, and damage. Institutions chosen to participate in this program will receive an onsite visit, a collections assessment, recommendations for managing and caring for the collections, training and instructions, and other resources including some basic preservation supplies.
The purpose of TAP is to help improve preservation of and access to collections that document the culture and history of our state.
The application is open to all North Carolina cultural and heritage institutions that house and maintain active historical collections, and whose collections are accessible to the public; however, federal agencies and those institutions housing solely objects or artifacts are ineligible for this program.
Since its beginnings in 2009, TAP has served more than 100 repositories in 54 counties.
