Calling all California archives, galleries, historical societies, libraries, museums and tribal nations! We need you to take California’s Cultural Collections Protection Survey.

California’s cultural heritage organizations are the primary keepers of the state’s local and tribal history and art.

The Cultural Collections Protection Survey is the first step in creating a central database of California’s culturally significant assets. Think of it as a census for California’s cultural collections. By helping state and federal decisionmakers understand the value, importance and condition of these assets, we can support new and more informed policies to ensure they are protected and made accessible to all Californians.

Registration for the survey is now open to any collecting institution in California.

Please spread the word to other colleagues and organizations across the state, as our success depends on reaching as many collecting entities as possible!
