29 Apr USCCN Supports Efforts to Identify Ukrainian Scientific Collections Under Threat
The U.S. Department of State, the Interagency Working Group on Scientific Collections (IWGSC), the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), and the Smithsonian Cultural Rescue Initiative (SCRI) are working together to help identify, and where possible assist with efforts to save/protect priceless Ukrainian archival, cultural, and scientific collections that may be in harm’s way given the ongoing military conflict.
The USCCN is supporting these efforts by helping to quickly identify relevant collections and their needs.
If you know of collections in Ukraine that may be under threat or may need assistance, please complete this Google Form to provide information about these collections, including descriptions, locations, special needs, and points of contact. Please submit one form entry for each collection. The data submitted will be stored in a secure database with the U.S. State Department.
