An assessment of the environment and materials in the Department of Archives and Special Collections; the creation of a long-range preservation plan with established priorities; and the purchase of equipment and materials as well as professional development programs as recommended by the consultant. The collection includes rare books, manuscripts and autographs from the 17th century to the present; the Fred Rogers Collection (including Mister Rogers's trademark sweater and sneakers); collections of Florida authors such as Zora Neale Hurston, Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings, and Rex E. Beach; and the College archives.

Rollins College is requesting an NEH grant of $6,000 to support: 1) the contracting of a preservation consultant to conduct a comprehensive assessment of the conditions, policies, and practices of Rollins' Department of Archives and Special Collections; and 2) the development of a long range preservation plan based on the consultant's recommendations, for specific actions to ensure the preservation of the College's rare collections for the general public and generations of students, faculty, and other scholars.
