Dear Preservation Pro users,
The Utah Department of Community and Culture (DCC) has received authority from the State Legislature to collect a new fee for use of Preservation Pro, which is managed by our daughter agency, the Utah Division of State History (UDSH). The construction of Preservation Pro was primarily funded by DCC’s Digitization Initiative through funds approved by the State Legislature.
UDSH records customers have enjoyed several years of free access to Preservation Pro’s predecessor and Preservation Pro’s initial releases. However, on February 28, 2012 the new yearly fee of $343.25 per user account will go into effect, prorated to $115.00 per user account for the remainder of the fiscal year ending June 30, 2012. The fees will be collected by DCC Administration and you will receive more information on payment options later. Current on-site Literature Search fees will remain unchanged.
Collected fees will directly fund hosting, maintenance, and any future development in Preservation Pro. To have a voice in future development we strongly encourage you to provide feedback through the Preservation Pro Feedback tab.
Please remember that accounts are on a person-by-person basis and the sharing of account credentials is not allowed as explained in the Preservation Pro user agreement. If you need to have new accounts created, or existing accounts deactivated, please contact your Preservation Pro system administrator.
If you have questions, please feel free to contact Wilson Martin at 801-533-3552.
