The PHP Initiative Goals



o Encourage communication across institutions
working to assist Haiti's libraries.

o Coordinate technical and in-kind assistance
for Haiti's libraries.

o Raise money to support specific
collection/archival recovery and
preservation projects in Haiti






Haitian Patrimonial Collections
I

Archives Nationales d'Haiti, which
houses civil and state records as well
of those of the Office of the President
and most government ministries.

Bibliotheque National d'Haiti, established in
1939, holds a small collection of historical rare
books, manuscripts and newspapers, and
offers current publications, research support
and study space.







Haitian Patrimonial Collections


Bibliotheque haiitienne des Freres de
I'lnstruction Chr6tienne, founded in 1912 by
the Christian Brothers serves as repository for
Haitian imprints and one of the most
significant collections of newspapers.


Bibliotheque hai'tienne des Peres du Saint-
Esprit, founded in 1873 by the Fathers of the
Holy Spirit holds documents chronicling the
history of Haiti, French colonization, slavery
and emancipation and 20th century records.






Three Phases of the Plan


Protect Preserve Perpetuate


One Protect
After the earthquake, the libraries and archives
entered into this phase focusing on protecting
public and private collections from the elements






Three Phases of the Plan

Protect Preserve Perpetuate

Two Preserve
Collections that were put in regular standard
cardboard boxes will need to be properly
preserved after repairing the current facilities or at
an alternative location






Three Phases of the Plan


Protect Preserve


- Perpetuate


Three Perpetuate
A special emphasis on reinforcing the local
institutions will ensure that these collections become
better protected and more accessible for future
generations of patrons
