Imaging, Preservation, and Collections Care

Amigos Imaging, Preservation, and Collections Care is a not-for-profit service that provides preservation information, support, and training to librarians and archivists in the southwestern United States, primarily the states of Arizona, Arkansas, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Texas. Established in 1991 with a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, this service began by documenting the preservation needs of libraries and archives in the Southwest.

Imaging, Preservation, and Collections Care provides information, disaster planning and recovery assistance, training, and site surveys. It develops state and local cooperative networks while serving as an advocate for preservation regionally and nationally.
