The Artist's Legacy Toolkit, funded by the National Endowment for the Arts, is an ever-evolving online resource that empowers artists with information on how to preserve their legacies. The Toolkit provides guidance on how to organize and preserve your materials in ways that are practical but neither time-intensive nor expensive. Tiered career levels help you target what information is most important to you right now, providing a more manageable entry point to the Toolkit. We look forward to feedback as we continue to expand this resource.

The Dance Collections Database (DCDb) is the "match.com" for artists and archives. If you are contemplating what to do with your materials from 20+ years in the dance community, now is the time to let the DCDb assist your search for a permanent home for them. This database enables you to create a searchable profile while you look for that perfect home and also enables archives and libraries to find you. Thanks to start-up funding from the National Endowment for the Arts, this service is currently FREE! An outpouring of interest will help us attract continued funding to enhance and expand the DCDb.
