Hiring a consultant by the University Museum and the Special Collections and University Archives to conduct a general preservation assessment and purchase of storage equipment for four collections of fine and decorative arts, including 4,000 paintings, drawings, prints, photographs, and sculpture, and 9,000 linear feet of manuscripts and other documentary materials related to these collections. The four collections are works by artist Milton Bancroft; works by American photojournalist Wilbur Coffman; the Hadley Collection of Native American pottery and baskets; and the Jack Collection of Inuit carvings and prints.

The University Museum and the Special Collections & University Archives at Indiana University of Pennsylvania (IUP) are seeking funding in the form of a $5,894.00 grant to support two activities which would preserve their complementary collections and improve public access to them: (1) a general preservation assessment of these collections and the current conditions in which they are housed, and (2) purchase of storage furniture needed to preserve these collections.
