(2)RevisedHHI2014Help preserve our shared heritage, increase funding for conservation, and strengthen collections care by completing the Heritage Health Information 2014 National Collections Care Survey.

The HHI 2014 is a national survey on the condition of collections held by archives, libraries, historical societies, museums, scientific research collections, and archaeological repositories. It is the only comprehensive survey to collect data on the condition and preservation needs of our nation’s collections.

Recently, the directors of over 14,000 collecting institutions across the country were contacted by email to participate in this survey. The survey was sent by email with the subject: “Opportunity Knocks – The HHI 2014 National Collections Care Survey is Here!” This email contains personal survey login information. Gathering information about our nation’s state and local history institutions is absolutely essential; if invited, we encourage you to participate.

Check your inbox or go here for more information and to complete the survey. The deadline is November 24, 2014.  For questions, email [email protected] or call 202.233.0824.
