Our Mission: To preserve the nation’s heritage for future generations through innovative leadership, education, and programs.

The Heritage Health Information 2014: A National Collections Care Survey (HHI 2014) is the only comprehensive survey to collect data on the condition and preservation needs of our nation’s collections. Heritage Preservation, in partnership with IMLS and NEH, is pleased to announce this new study as follow up to the success of the Heritage Health Index 2004.
