Connecting to Collections: A Call to Action
America’s collections are for everyone. They are discovered billions of times a year in libraries and museums across the country. They enlighten and inspire all of us. Yet they are at risk.
The Institute of Museum and Library Services has created Connecting to Collections: A Call to Action: a multi-year, multi-faceted national initiative to raise public awareness and inspire action. The initiative is grounded in the results of A Public Trust at Risk: The Heritage Health Index Report on the State of America’s Collections.
