About Us: How

The Archive Project’s mission is to document, protect, and celebrate the history of the preservation movement in order to ensure that an accurate account of the movement is made available for posterity.

We accomplish our mission by:

  • Making reference materials, original research, and primary source documents available on this website
  • Conducting oral history interviews with key figures in the movement
  • Assisting in properly archiving the papers and documents of preservationists and organizations
  • Conducting educational outreach programs with preservation students, professionals, and the general public
