100 Brickstone Square
Andover, MA 01810
Founded in 1973, NEDCC is the
first nonprofit center to specialize in the conservation and reformatting of
paper-based materials, and has recently expanded its services to include audio
preservation. NEDCC’s mission is to improve the preservation efforts of
libraries, archives, historical organizations, museums, and other repositories;
to provide the highest quality conservation and reformatting services to
collections-holding institutions; and to provide leadership in preservation,
conservation, and digital reformatting.
Its services include book, paper, and
photograph conservation; digital reformatting (imaging and audio); assessments
and consultations; disaster assistance; online preservation education; and
workshops and conferences. NEDCC has consulted with organizations across the
country to plan for the long-term preservation of their collections and has
worked with a range of institutions to reformat their deteriorating documents, photographs,
negatives, and obsolete audio materials. NEDCC has treated many of the most
significant paper-based collections in the United States, including William
Bradford’s manuscript history of the Plymouth Plantation; the original
manuscript of the Book of Mormon; Abraham Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation;
and works of art on paper by various masters, such as Rembrandt and Degas.
for other projects of note.) NEDCC is located in Andover, MA, twenty-five miles
north of Boston. For more information, please visitwww.nedcc.org.
