The Assessment/Mentoring Project originated as part of the WHRAB Strategic Plan, 1996-2001. The purpose of the project is to improve Wisconsin repositories' work with the state's historical records and to strengthen partnerships with statewide associations of records creators, keepers, and users. This project responds to Wisconsin repositories' preference for on-site, face-to-face assistance in their work with historical records, as noted in the strategic plan. WHRAB has teamed up with the Wisconsin Association of Public Librarians, the Wisconsin Council for Local History, and the Wisconsin Federation of Museums to administer this project, and representatives from each of the organizations are part of the project's advisory committee .
The Assessment/Mentoring Project is funded by the National Historical Publications and Records Commission and the Wisconsin Historical Society.
