The purchase of rehousing supplies, a flat-file cabinet for storage, and environmental monitoring equipment to preserve the university's special collections, which include materials documenting the history of the wine industry and United Farm Workers in the region, the unpublished poems and papers of Virginia Hamilton Adair, as well as renderings and photographs of the Tournament of Roses parade floats. The collections serve student research interests and university exhibits; doctoral-level students and journalists make regular use of the wine industry collection, in particular.

We are seeking funding to implement improvements to housing and caring for our collections, based on specific recommendations from a preservation consultant. It is essential for us to make these improvements as soon as possible in order to properly care for our unique collections which relate to the subjects of history and poetry, and also include some art works.
