Preservation in Action (PiA) is a program sponsored by the Association for Library Collections and Technical Services (ALCTS) Preservation and Reformatting Section (PARS), in support of ALA's Libraries Transform initiative. The program is intended to promote an understanding of the importance of preservation while engaging with cultural heritage collections in ALA conference locations.

Preservation in Action Events

Each year during the ALA Annual Conference & Exhibition, PiA holds a day-long preservation project in the local community where the conference is held. No experience is required and the event is free with conference registration.
