Within HSP’s total holdings of 21 million items, many collections require organization, improved descriptions, and preservation to ensure their proper care and continued accessibility to researchers.

From mending tears and tightening spines, to replacing whole covers and re-housing in specially designed boxes, the Adopt-a-Collection program assists HSP with processing collections, making better known their contents to researchers and the public.

Collection adopters receive special recognition on HSP's website and in the Sidelights newsletter. If a Finding Aid is created for the adopted collection, donors are prominently featured on its title page.
