The Tennessee State Library and Archives just announced it will grant funds to 29 organizations across the state to preserve historical records and improve record storage. These funds may be used for items such as shelving, cabinets, archival folders, boxes, dehumidifiers, and other tools used by archivists. TSLA grants can make a big difference when it comes to keeping records safe and protected, as well as ensuring their long-term survival and use. We were thrilled to see six AASLH members on the list of awardees, and we congratulate them on their hard work and commitment to preserving history!
