[Posted on behalf of our colleagues at LYRASIS.  Please contact Leigh A. Grinstead (leigh.grinstead at lyrasis.org<mailto:leigh.grinstead at lyrasis.org>) with any questions.]

LYRASIS has been hired by the National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC) to develop a Small and Diverse Archival Organization Needs Assessment Survey. Thank you for your interest in the project—your support is critical to understanding the needs of small archives and supporting the field!
We believe that “small archives” are generally defined as those repositories with budgets of $100,000 or less and/or holdings of 1,000 cubic feet or less—these are not absolute figures—and repositories should not skip the survey if they have slightly larger budgets or holdings.

We recommend you review the form and your answers with your colleagues before beginning to answer the survey online; we hope to have one survey representing a single institution, and not multiple surveys from a single site.

The survey is available at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/NHPRC2020
We are providing you with a PDF version of the survey to assist you in drafting answers and completing the survey prior to entering your information online. If you wish, you may print the survey NHPRC.pdf<https://lyrasisnow.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/02/NHPRC-Survey.pdf> to review and discuss with your colleagues before completing online.

We estimate the survey will take no more than 20 minutes to complete. The survey is editable so that if you close or exit the browser before submitting your responses, you may finish later, but we encourage you to complete it in one sitting.

Confidentiality: Your responses are being collected and analyzed by LYRASIS, an independent, nonprofit, membership organization serving libraries, archives, and museums. They will be kept confidential. Only aggregate results will be reported. Please answer these questions to help us learn about Small and Diverse Archival Organization needs. To submit your answers, you must click on the “Done” button at the end of the survey form. Please submit the survey by March 25, 2020 at 5:00 Eastern time.

Thank you for your support with this important project.
