This is a very important opportunity for library, museum, and archival
managers, staff, and advocates to begin planning for improved preservation
of Oregon's heritage collections.  Please attend one of two meetings next
month in either Eugene (July 15) or Portland (July 16).  Learn about
Oregon's score card in the national Heritage Health Index and have your say
about preservation, training, and disaster preparedness for Oregon's
heritage collections.   Fall meetings in Bend, Medford, and Pendleton will
be announced when the logistics are finalized.







Worried about Preserving Your Heritage Collection? You Can Make a


Please attend one of two free meetings being held in Eugene and Portland on
July 15th and July 16th, respectively.  We need your input to make a
successful plan. The dates of additional fall season meetings in Pendleton,
Medford, and Bend will be announced as they are finalized. 


By attending one of these meetings you can help the heritage
community...archives, libraries, and museums...plan a better future for
Oregon's heritage collections.  A grant from the federal Institute for
Museums and Library Services (IMLS) to the Oregon Museum Association on
behalf of archive, library, and museum partners throughout Oregon is making
it possible for us to take stock of our preservation, training, and disaster
preparedness needs.  From this a statewide preservation plan to address
those needs will be developed.  The plan is a necessary first step to secure
funding for implementation.



Refreshments will be provided.  Please let us know you are coming so that we
can plan adequate seating and refreshments by emailing Ruth Metz
(ruthmetz at spiretech.com).  You may also email your questions to Ruth Metz.
