Oklahoma Department of Libraries
Grants of up to $6,000 in professional assistance are available to Oklahoma institutions involved with the preservation of the state's history and culture. Applicants whose collections are accessible to the public are eligible to receive help in developing plans for the care of their collections. Smaller institutions with limited funding will receive priority.
Organizations accepted into the program will receive:
1) Assistance in conducting an organizational and collections self-assessment;
2) Services of a professional Preservation Consultant who will work with staff and volunteers to develop a written collections assessment plan; and
3) Registration fee waivers for workshops sponsored by OHRAB and its partners.
Organizations successfully completing the program will be eligible to apply for future funding through ODL/OHRAB to help address one of the priorities identified in the written plan and, if desired, assistance with completing a grant application to the National Endowment for the Humanities Preservation Assistance Grants program for small to mid-sized organizations.
Each participating repository must complete an organizational self-assessment covering mission, planning, governance, finances, policies, risk management, security, marketing and outreach, procedures, storage, and general facility conditions.
