Award of $1,250 to a USA, Canada, or International individual or group to recognize and assist outstanding collaborative work in the field of preservation. Preservation projects may be conducted in historical institutions, libraries, or archives. Nominees should demonstrate vision, endorse cooperation, and advocate for the preservation of published and primary source resources that capture the richness of the cultural patrimony.

The award acknowledges and supports cooperative preservation projects and/or rewards individuals or groups that foster collaboration for preservation goals. The award recognizes the leadership and initiative required to build collaborative networks designed to achieve specific preservation goals. Since collaboration, cooperation, advocacy and outreach are key strategies that epitomize preservation, the award promotes cooperative efforts and supports equitable preservation.

The award jury will consider:

  • A project emphasizing collaboration or partnership.
  • Collaboration extending the preservation vision beyond the circle of preservation specialists and foster action to raise awareness and set priorities, projects, and programs into motion.
  • Nomination of an individual or group for cumulative achievement as a mentor or advocate of collaborative preservation.
