Preservation Week Press Kit

Preservation Week, Save your stuff and pass it on!,April 24-30, 2016,


During Preservation Week libraries, archives, and museums globally present events, activities, and resources that highlight what we can do, individually and together, to preserve our personal and shared history.

Preservation Week was created in 2010 because some 630 million items in collecting institutions require immediate attention and care. Eighty percent of these institutions have no paid staff assigned to collections care and 22 percent have no collections care personnel at all. Some 2.6 billion items are not protected by an emergency plan. As natural disasters of recent years have taught us, these resources are in jeopardy should a disaster strike. Personal, family, and community collections are equally at risk.

Preservation Week is an initiative of the Association for Library Collections and Technical Services (ALCTS), a division of the American Library Association (ALA).
