Calling all libraries, archives, historical societies, museums, and cultural organizations! Do you need extra funding to make your preservation goals a reality?
Join the National Endowment for the Humanities and the North Carolina Preservation Consortium to learn more about this $10,000 NEH grant for preservation assessments, consultations, training, and supplies. Participants will learn about the application process and have a chance to share their project ideas with other attendees. Projects may support the preservation of physical as well as digital humanities collections.
The webinar will be accessible to persons with disabilities, consistent with the standards prescribed by Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (29 U.S.C. § 794(d)).

NCPC accepts no responsibility in such cases beyond the refund of the workshop registration fees.
Workshop Wait List Policy
If a workshop is full, NCPC will maintain a wait list on a first-come first-served basis. You must register within 24 hours of notification to reserve your seat. The wait list will close 48 hours prior to the workshop, however NCPC reserves the right to add registrants within that period.
