Allison Olson NARA’s Director of Preservation Programs will provide an overview of NARA’s Preservation Strategy and its recent accomplishments. As the National Archives seeks to serve more customers in a fast-changing and information-overloaded era, Preservation Programs has adopted four major themes to cultivate the success of NARA’s mission. In the broad categories of understanding the risks at play, producing high quality products, enhancing heritage science, and enabling our talented workforce, Preservation Programs is leading in improved preservation practice and relevance to NARA’s goals. The Preservation Strategy was adopted in 2019, after several years of planning, and will be in effect through 2024.

Emily Farek, the Conservation Manager from the Tennessee State Library and Archives will share how the Conservation Lab has developed and allowed for improved treatment capabilities in its space in the newly built Library & Archives building. She will also describe the work being done to create policies, understand a new building environment, and make the space work the best it can for the preservation needs of the collection.
