A preservation and access assessment of the Carl Albert Center's Congressional Archives that date from 1850 to 2002.

The Carl Albert Congressional Research and Studies Center at the University of Oklahoma proposes to hire a consultant to conduct a preservation needs assessment of its archival collections. The consultant will conduct on-site surveys of collections at two sites. Through visits and interviews the consultant will assess the general condition of the collections, organization, housing, security, and storage environment. The consultant will make recommendations for a long-term archival management plan that addresses storage, preservation, and access of the collections.
