DHPSNY is happy to announce that the deadline for our summer Planning & Assessment Services application round has been extended to Friday, July 14th, 2017. Applications can be downloaded at dhpsny.org and must be postmarked or received via email by the deadline to be considered for the summer 2017 review period.
DHPSNY awards services to a limited number of institutions in three areas: Archival Needs Assessments, Preservation & Conservation Surveys, and Strategic Planning assistance. Visit our Planning & Assessment Services page to learn more about each and determine which is right for your organization.
Archival Needs Assessments provide assistance in archival program development tailored to specific organizational needs. Click here to learn more and download the application.

In June, DHPSNY introduced our new Mentorship Program with an informal luncheon at the annual New York Archives Conference in Utica. Unlike traditional one-on-one mentorship, our program will establish mentorship circles consisting of four-to-six individuals at varying points in their career, allowing them to serve as both a mentor and a mentee, and welcome those seeking to engage in both roles. The program is designed to help everyone at all levels of experience to network, expand their archival and preservation expertise, and meet professional goals. Registration is open through July 14th.
