The Task Force to Initiate Preservation Planning
in Maryland was formed in 1991. The Task Force is
concerned with preserving the textual material
housed in Maryland's libraries, archives, historical
societies, and museums. Acting upon recommenda-
Maryland Manual 1994-1995
tions of the 1990 Governor's Conference on Li-
braries and Information Services, the Task Force
applied for and received a grant from the National
Endowment for the Humanities to study and devise
a plan to coordinate preservation efforts statewide.
In 1994, the Task Force will issue an action plan
that outlines a program, coordinated through the
State Archives, of conservation services, informa-
tion dissemination, and basic training in preserva-
tion methods. The goal of the program is to provide
low-cost preservation assistance to institutions
across the State. The staff at the State Archives will
work with preservation specialists in Maryland to
insure that the State's record heritage is preserved
for future generations.
