Hiring a consultant to undertake a preservation assessment of two collections in the Moffett Library and to offer one day of training in preserving archival holdings for the library staff and staff from other cultural institutions in the area. The library collection focuses on the history of printing, and includes ancient maps, illuminated manuscripts, a 200-year old printing press, and replicas of cuneiform and hieroglyphic writing, while the university archives holds the work of a local photographer and historic railroad maps.

The George Moffett Library of Midwestern State University in Wichita Falls, Texas, is requesting the National Endowment for the Humanities Preservation Assistance Grant in support of two activities. The initial and most critical activity will be a complete assessment of two collections in the library, The Nolan A. Moore III Heritage of Print Collection and the Archives Collection. The second activity will be to fund a one-day training session on "Preserving Your Historical Records, An Archival Holdings Maintenance Workshop." The training will be attended by select staff members of Moffett Library, and an invitation will be extended to regional libraries and preservation organizations in the area.
