The purchase of storage equipment and preservation supplies for oversized print and manuscript materials documenting the history and culture of the Basque population in southwest Idaho and elsewhere in the western United States. Included are 70 posters, 50 maps, 70 certificates (including handwritten documents in Spanish and Basque), and 150 newspapers in tabloid and broadside formats, dating from the 1910s to the present. The sources provide historical information on Basque performing arts groups and cultural festivals along with immigration, naturalization, birth, and marriage records and have been used in scholarly and genealogical research, educational activities, and exhibitions.

The Basque Museum & Cultural Center (BMCC), located in Boise, Idaho, will purchase flat file cabinets and appropriate archival-quality supplies for the storage of selected oversized collections such as posters, documents, newspapers and maps. Curatorial staff and volunteers will then re-house the selected collections and update cataloging records, as needed. These collections comprise a portion of BMCC's permanent collection and are used to carry out its mission to "...preserve, promote and perpetuate Basque history and culture."
