I am sending the following message with a request that you put this message
on your association website and distribute it to your membership. 

I am the project consulting coordinator for the Connecting to Collections
grant project.  I expect that you know about this grant project for
archives, museums, and libraries.  However, please contact me by email or
phone if you have questions.  I very much appreciate your assistance in
getting the word out about these two important meetings on July 15th and
July 16th related to preserving and sustaining our Oregon heritage
collections.  These meetings are for those who work in or advocate for
museums, libraries, and archives.

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.
