Imaging & Preservation Service (IPS)

The Amigos Imaging & Preservation Service (IPS) is a not-for-profit, grant-funded 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, IPS began by documenting the preservation needs of libraries and archives in the Southwest.

Today, IPS 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.

The Imaging & Preservation Service is funded in part by a grant from the Division of Preservation and Access of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
