The purchase of environmental monitoring equipment, shelving, and preservation supplies for the museum's rare books and archival collections. The project would also support in-house workshops on environmental monitoring and preserving historical records. The museum's book and archival holdings support its strengths in Spanish Colonial, Latin American, and pre-Columbian art, as well as art of the American West.

The Tucson Museum of Art would like to implement recommendations for preservation management in its Research Library. Recommendations are based on a preservation site survey conducted in April of 2007 and a subsequent Preservation Site Survey Report written in May 2007. The scope of the proposal includes: 1) the purchase and installation of environmental monitoring equipment; 2) the purchase of separate shelving for the rare book collection; 3) the purchase of steel canopy top shelving to protect the library's book collection from dust and light; and 4) the purchase of supplies to protect three archival collections, and damaged rare books. Two workshops, "Environmental Monitoring" and "Preserving Your Historical Records: An Archival Holding Maintenance," would be held to train staff and museum volunteers on new equipment and preservation practices.
