An award from the Institute for Museum and Library Services will help preserve treasured objects and artifacts held by the Woodrow Wilson Presidential Library in Staunton.

The Connecting to Collections Bookshelf award will provide resources from IMLS and the American Association for State and Local History to help the Presidential Library preserve and make accessible its collection of more than 1 million Woodrow Wilson-related documents.

“The Woodrow Wilson Presidential Library is honored to receive this award, which is evidence of our dedication to responsible preservation of the documents and artifacts in our collection,” said Dr. Heidi Hackford, director of the library at the Woodrow Wilson Presidential Library. “Our donors rightfully expect us to take care of these historical materials. The resources that accompany this award will help us to continue to meet the high standard we set.”
