Dakota Collections Care Initiative
The Dakota Collections Care Initiative (DCCI) is a partnership between collections care professionals at museums, libraries and archives in North Dakota and South Dakota to improve collections care and emergency preparedness and response for small and mid-sized collecting heritage institutions across the two states.
DCCI partners include the Association of South Dakota Museums, North Dakota Library Association, Plains Art Museum in Fargo, South Dakota State Historical Society, South Dakota State Library, and State Historical Society of North Dakota.
Terri Schindel, affiliated with the Museum Training Network, is the project conservator and will lead the workshops.
Dana Schaar of Clearwater Communications is the project administrator. She may be contacted at (701) 355-4458 or email@example.com.
The project is made possible by a two-year Connecting to Collections implementation grant from the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS). The IMLS is the primary source of federal support for the nation’s 123,000 libraries and 17,500 museums. The Institute's mission is to create strong libraries and museums that connect people to information and ideas. To learn more about the Institute, please visit www.imls.gov.
