The deadline for the Heritage Health Information 2014: A National Collections Care Survey has been EXTENDED to February 13, 2015.

If you have not had the opportunity to complete your survey, now is the time.

This survey is a follow-up to the 2004 Heritage Health Index. At the 10-year anniversary of that watershed report, Heritage Preservation has partnered with the Institute of Museum and Library Services and the National Endowment for the Humanities, together with support from foundations, to conduct the Heritage Health Information 2014 (HHI) to assess the current state of cultural heritage collections in 2014 and the change in preservation practices in U.S. institutions since the initial study. The HHI 2014 survey is expected to launch in the fall with a final report issued in 2015.

Invitations to participate were sent to institution directors in October. These invitations included personalized login information, which may be entered at

If you need your invitation re-sent, please contact or 202-233-0824.

Heritage Health Information 2014 is sponsored by the Institute of Museum and Libraries Services and the National Endowments for the Humanities & Arts, and is conducted by Heritage Preservation.

Please do all you can to ensure that your institution is represented in this important survey. Your responses are critical in garnering future support for collections care.
