Illinois - Connecting to Collections
Connecting to Collections was an Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) initiative (launched in 2007) to aid libraries and museums in their efforts to provide the best possible care for the collections. The initiative is grounded in the results of the Heritage Health Index, the first, comprehensive survey of the condition and preservation needs of collections held in U.S. institutions.
This is a digital archive of materials (e.g., reports, survey data, survey tools) developed as part of Illinois’s IMLS Connecting to Collections Statewide Planning Grant or Connecting to Collections Statewide Implementation Grant.
