RALEIGH, N.C. -- The state has extended its deadline for North Carolina's cultural and heritage institutions to apply for a program that helps them care for their archives, papers and records at risk of deterioration.
The Traveling Archivist Program provides hands-on assistance to those institutions. It was developed by the North Carolina State Historical Records Advisory Board and the North Carolina State Archives.
Institutions selected for the program will receive an onsite visit, recommendations for managing and caring for collections and other resources.
The deadline now is Friday.
