A partial renovation of the Special Collections wing of the George C. Gordon Library at the Worcester Polytechnic Institute, which holds a diverse collection of business records, personal papers, and rare books relating to the history of industry and technical education in the United States. The proposed activities will improve environmental conditions by isolating air handling from the main library building's system, enhancing extant fire protection systems, and installing a new environmental control (HVAC) system for the special collections.

Worcester Polytechnic Institute's George C. Gordon Library seeks an implementation grant to fund the partial renovation of the existing Special Collections Wing to provide adequate environmental conditions and fire protection for the storage and preservation of archival and special collections materials.
