Preservation Week for Librarians

Preservation Week, April 21-27, 2013

Libraries and other institutions can use Preservation Week to connect our communities through events, activities, and resources that highlight what we can do, individually and together, to preserve our personal and shared collections.

Get involved! You don't need a lot of time or money, you just need to get started.

  • create a display about preserving and collecting personal, family, or community heritage
  • offer a preservation workshop or event
  • highlight Preservation Week on your website with a logo linked to ALA’s Preservation Week resources
  • Tweet about Preservation Week #preswk.

On the Association for Library Collections & Technical Services (ALCTS) website you'll find information, resources, templates, graphics, and more great ideas for celebrating Preservation Week.

  • Find preservation information and resources in the Preservation Toolkit: facts |  videos  |  tips  |  statistics  |  links
  • Share your event on the Event Map
