The purchase of storage and preservation supplies to relocate a special collection in the Gimbel Library on fashion and design, which includes more than 2,500 books and some 500 volumes of periodicals, to an environmentally monitored space. Included in the collection are artists' books; materials donated by Ogden Codman, Jr., a noted Gilded Age architect and interior designer; and 19th- and 20th-century art, architecture, photography, crafts, fashion, and interior design books, as well as art and book collecting periodicals, such as "La Mode," "American Fabrics," "Gazette des Beaux Arts," and "Vogue."

The Adam and Sophie Gimbel Design Library is requesting funding to support the purchase of storage furniture and preservation supplies to relocate Special Collections materials into a secure facility with environmental monitoring and control. The goals of this project are derived from the recommendations made by the Northeast Document Conservation Center's Karen Motylewski in her Preservation Assessment prepared in April 1991.
