Background The Institute of Museum and Library Services is the primary source of federal support for the Nation’s 123,000 libraries and 17,500 museums. The Institute’s mission is to inspire libraries and museums to advance innovation, learning and civic engagement. The Institute works at the national level and in coordination with state and local organizations to sustain heritage, culture, and knowledge; enhance learning and innovation; and support professional development. IMLS is responsible for identifying national needs for and trends in museum, library, and information services; measuring and reporting on the impact and effectiveness of museum, library and information services throughout the United States, including programs conducted with funds made available by IMLS; identifying, and disseminating information on, the best practices of such programs; and developing plans to improve museum, library and information services of the United States and strengthen national, State, local, regional, and international communications and cooperative networks (20 U.S.C. Chapter 72, 20 U.S.C. 9108). II. Current Actions The intention of the Heritage Health Index II on the State of America’s Collections (HHI II) is to assess the state VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:48 Dec 09, 2013 Jkt 232001 of preservation across the entire spectrum of collecting institutions, large and small, from internationally renowned art museums and research libraries to local historical societies and specialized archives. Conservation practices on all types of media will be covered, with a small number of questions about each topic included on the survey. The purpose of this survey is to gather information on the state of collections care across cultural heritage organizations, including tracking trends and assessing the current state of digital conservation. The design of the HHI II will be a repeated cross-sectional web survey of U.S. cultural heritage organizations, which will yield a minimum of 3,000 cases. The HHI II will include a core set of institutional and administrative questions (e.g., size, number of paid staff, number of visitors, governance, geographic area) as well as a core set of questions grouped by conservation practices and standards (e.g., environmental controls; long-range and emergency planning; funding and expenditures on collections; number of collections items and the state of each item). In addition to these core questions, supplemental questions may also be included. Agency: Institute of Museum and Library Services.
