Research Assessments and Institutional Planning at the Image Permanence Institute

Alexander Shuey

The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation awarded RIT $165,000 in funding to support assessment initiatives that will inform and strengthen short- and long-term research goals and institutional planning at IPI.

This initiative includes a preservation research assessment that will engage and solicit feedback from colleagues throughout the preservation community to identify research needs and priorities recognized in the field. Assessment activities will include online surveys and working meetings hosted at RIT with library, archive, and museum leadership professionals, preservation researchers, and preservation educators who can speak to the preservation needs of cultural institutions. A one-year, full-time Preservation Research Associate position will be hired to collaborate with IPI’s Executive Director, Jae Gutierrez, on completing the research assessment activities.
