A preservation survey of early American imprints consisting of approximately 850 New Hampshire and colonial imprints of the 16th through the 19th centuries, item-level examination of selected volumes, and the purchase of protective enclosures as recommended by the consultant.

The New Hampshire State Library is requesting $6,000 to hire a book conservation consultant from the Northeast Document Conservation Center to conduct a collection level preservation assessment of its special collection of 16th, 17th, 18th and 19th century books printed by New Hampshire printers and by colonial and pre-colonial European printers. In 2002, a NEH Preservation Assistance Grant funded a general collection preservation assessment to help the state library develop its current preservation plan. This survey identified the state library's New Hampshire and colonial imprints collections as a priority for a collection specific assessment. The consultant will conduct a two-day on-site survey of the state library's 850 brittle books and pamphlets contained in this special collection that are printed before the 20th century. She will examine the ways the books are stored and utilized in addition to documenting the condition of each item in a written report.
