The close alliance between preservation of cultural heritage collections and the provision of access to them will be explored, with particular reference to the ways in which the grant programs of the Division of Preservation and Access at the National Endowment for the Humanities exemplify that alliance. The results of a recent strategic planning effort, which included attention both to physical preservation and to preservation of the digital cultural record, will be presented and shown to have led to changes and additions that strengthen the bond between preservation and access in the division's programs.
Speaker Biography: Nadina Gardner is director of the division of preservation and access at the National Endowment for the Humanities.
