A general preservation survey of the Special Collections, which consist of a collection of Bibles dating from the 15th through the 18th century, a 13th-century illuminated manuscript, and an Americana collection that includes a number of items associated with Lincoln.

The grant would support activities in the Special Collections Department of De Paul Library. This request is for two items. First, we would like to have a professional evaluation of our collection by Heugh-Edmondson Conservation Services. While we have had informal evaluations and recommendations that have guided our efforts to this point, we feel a comprehensive and professional evaluation is necessary before any further projects are undertaken. Additionally, the entire collection is in need of preservation supplies and proper storage. Specifically this grant is requested for a flat storage cabinet with base to store broadsheets, one wire shelving unit to hold document storage boxes, and acid free shelf paper to line wood shelving.
