Media Collection Care Management program:

MNMA offers an emergency program for media collection care impacted by environmental issues, house sale, moving or downsizing. We provide an onsite assessment process to evaluate your collection’s stability and security plus a visual “box level” photo inventory. We will also provide recommendations for improved storage solutions.

This program is fee based and may include additional costs for storage supplies like boxes, labels or shelving. The program duration is approximately three to six weeks and costs can range from $2,500-7,500 depending on collection size and rush services. Upon signing a $500 collection care emergency agreement, we will provide an initial assessment and project estimate. (Members receive a 30% discount) Please ask for more information on MNMA’s contact us form.
