An implementation project involving the purchase of storage furniture, the replacement of lighting fixtures, and the rehousing of more than 100 art works and 450 ethnographic objects and textiles documenting the history of the Moravian Church in North America from the 18th century to the present.

The Moravian Archives in Bethlehem, Pa., (MAB), requests an implementation grant of $148,085 to renovate the storage space in the facility's larger vault in order to improve storage conditions of its multifaceted collections related to the Moravian Church in North America, detailing the history of this important transatlantic religious group from the 18th century to the present. Specific project renovations would include 1) the installation of compact, moveable shelving, 2) installation of a hanging storage system for framed materials, 3) re-housing of object collection into acid-free boxes, and 4) replacement of outdated fluorescent lighting with new energy-efficient lighting outfitted with UV filtering sleeves. These improvements would address many goals outlined in recent preservation assessments, and would ensure the preservation and continued access to MAB collections.
