Core: Leadership, Infrastructure, Futures has unveiled a new logo and branding for its Preservation Week public awareness campaign. In its 12th year, Preservation Week has inspired individuals and communities around the world to preserve personal, family and community collections. In addition, this initiative has raised awareness of the role libraries and other cultural institutions play in providing ongoing preservation education and information.
Since its inception in 2010, Preservation Week has promoted preservation and conservation by offering resources, materials and a space to share events and ideas for Preservation Week celebrations. Available on the Preservation Week website, promotional materials such as bookmarks, Moo cards and honorary chair posters are free and can easily be downloaded. Additional Preservation Week programming includes free Preservation Week webinars, with webinar recordings from previous years posted in an archive.
The 2022 Preservation Week theme is “Preservation in the Face of Climate Change” and UPROSE Executive Director Elizabeth Yeampierre is this year’s honorary chair. Celebrating the concept of climate resiliency, Preservation Week 2022 will highlight the effects of climate change on our shared cultural heritage materials. The papers, photographs, ephemera and other materials held by both institutions and individuals can be integral to telling the story of the human impact on the environment. During Preservation Week, libraries, museums, institutions and communities are urged to examine the effects on collections and their keepers, as well as resiliency strategies.
Preservation Week 2022 will be held April 24-30, 2022. Visit the new Preservation Week website to discover more about Preservation Week, including information on the 2022 Preservation Week theme and honorary chair.
Preservation Week is supported by Core: Leadership, Infrastructure, Futures, a division of the American Library Association.
