During Preservation Week libraries, archives, and museums across the U.S. and around the globe present events, activities, and resources that highlight what we can do, individually and together, to preserve our personal and shared history.

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).
