Made Possible by IMLS & StEPs

The Resource Bank was made possible by the Institute of Museum and Library Services, a federal granting agency, as part of a project to offer StEPs-related technical assistance to the museum field and the general public. StEPs is the Standards and Excellence Program for History Organizations offered by AASLH.



What is StEPs?

Created by AASLH, StEPs is the Standards and Excellence Program for History Organizations. It helps small- and mid-sized history museums, historic sites and houses, including all-volunteer ones, assess policies and practices, manage daily operations, and plan for the future.
