Resource of the Month

I know it's April, but May 1 is right around the corner. So why not spend this month planning your MayDay activity?
MayDay is a time for people involved with cultural heritage to do something simple – something that can be accomplished in a day but that can have a significant impact on your repository’s ability to respond.
The most important thing is to do something on MayDay that will help save your collections.
