A general preservation survey of the Manhattanville College Library's special collections, which include 2,500 items in the rare book and manuscript collections, and over 300 linear feet of archival materials. The holdings comprise European works from the 15th to the 18th century, including works of Classical authors and those of early Catholic theologians, and American works from the 18th to the 20th century, including historical narratives, first editions, textbooks, authors of the Harlem Renaissance, and children's books.

Manhattanville College Library seeks a grant of $5,462.00 to support a general preservation survey focused upon the holdings of the Manhattanville College Library Special Collections. In January 1999 the Manhattanville College Library carried out a General Preservation Survey and over the past decade the library successfully completed a variety of projects that followed the recommendations made in this previous survey. However, a reevaluation in the preservation conditions of our rare book, manuscript, and archival resources is now essential so that we can gauge our progress and assess the developments of both our library building and technological advances in preservation.
