The relocation of archaeological artifacts to a new repository and purchase of storage furniture for rehousing the collection from the Egyptian Graeco-Roman site of Karanis.

The Kelsey Museum of Archaeology is requesting NEH support towards rehousing and stabilizing our unique and fragile collections. This effort is part of a much larger project ? the construction of a new wing with state-of-the-art climate control throughout. We are asking the NEH for funds to purchase 36 compact storage units; 209 linear feet of open, visible storage casework; and professional packers and movers for large objects in the collection. We also request salaries for temporary employees to assist in the treatment and preparation of objects prior to the move and the physical transfer of the collection to the new facility. The proposal also includes costs for associated supplies and materials. This undertaking will enable us to house and stabilize our entire collection together in the new, climate-controlled storage facility, and provide stable, controlled environments for objects used extensively for teaching.
