The purchase of preservation supplies, window coverings for diffusing sunlight, storage furniture, and environmental monitoring equipment for the institution's library and archival collections, which document the history of the upper Hudson Valley region from Colonial times to the present and support research and educational programs in archaeology, art history, literature, and philosophy.

The AIHA Library proposes to implement some of the recommendations that Beth Patkus, NEH-funded preservation consultant with the Northeast Document Conservation Center, made in her 2005 general preservation survey report. The Library will purchase and install solar shade to cover the seven Library windows; purchase archival supplies to rehouse the General Slide Collection and South Mall Photograph Album; purchase three five-drawer horizontal file cabinets to house the deeds; purchase two dehumidifiers to use as needed in the Library; purchase ten digital thermohygrometers to monitor environmental conditions in the Library and its exhibition cases.
