The Short Term Intervention Plan (STIP) at NALN in Bloemfontein was executed between 1 March 2010 and 31 April 2011. Four specialists of the HF team was deployed in March 2010 to work with the NALN personnel and local specialists. Basic conservation of collections (paper, wood, textile, metal) and museum training was completed. Contracts were signed with a cleaning team and a pest control company, to clean and treat the entire building. All the collections were documented and moved to storage spaces and exhibition areas. Excess and broken furniture and exhibition items were removed. Fourteen artificial resin replica busts of renowned Afrikaans authors were reproduced as part of the intervention plan.
