IMLS Releases Report on Cultural Heritage Institutions

The Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) published “Protecting America’s Collections: Results From the Heritage Health Information Survey.” This report “shed[s] light on the challenges faced by libraries, museums, and archives as they care for their collections, as well as the many strides they have made over a decade,” according to the press release. It is based on the Heritage Health Information Survey (HHIS) from 2014, which “assesses the preservation and conservation needs of today’s collecting institutions and provides selected updates from the Heritage Health Index of 2004.”

Among other findings, the report notes that 42% of organizations engage in emergency planning (with only 20% doing so in 2004), and 45% of organizations have conducted more collection assessments (a 50% increase from 2004).

For more information, read the press release.
