The purchase of 10 dataloggers to monitor environmental conditions in the museum's storage areas. The collections contain the records and photographs of scientist Wilson A. Bentley, who pioneered photomicrography to study the structure of snowflakes; the records of South Pacific ethnographer P.G.T. Black; archaeological and anthropological artifacts; a large rare book collection that includes Mayan codices and classic works in the natural sciences; and the archival records of the Buffalo Society of Natural Sciences.

Data recording the fluctuations in temperature and relative humidity will be maintained in order to better understand the conditions in which the collections are housed. This information will be utilized to establish preservation priorities.
