Utah Collections Preservation

About Us

The Utah Division of Arts & Museums (UA&M) and Utah Humanities (UH) are working together to establish the Utah Collections Preservation (UCP) program, providing preservation training to humanities collections stewards statewide. Over the next three years, this program will support comprehensive preservation training for collections stewards through webinars, in-person workshops, preservation assessments, and the focused training of seven Collections Preservation Team members. This program is supported by the State of Utah and the National Endowment for the Humanities through a Preservation and Access Education and Training grant.

The Collections Preservation Team (CPT) is a group of heritage stewards from across the state and is part of the greater Utah Collections Preservation Program. Team members will receive training in collections care and preventive conservation through online sessions, in-person workshops, and the completion of a mentored preservation project.

The CPT is limited to seven members who will be selected by application. This application form will remain open until August 31st.
