A preservation assessment of a collection focusing on local and regional architectural history and historic preservation of Portland, Maine. It includes a wide range of materials, including the archive of architectural historian John Pancoast, as well as photographs, artifacts, and papers relating to the preservation of the Portland Observatory (1807). The collection supports significant research activities by students, scholars, and the general public.

Greater Portland Landmarks, Inc., seeks a comprehensive preservation assessment of the Frances W. Peabody Research Library to include assessing environmental conditions, preparing a disaster plan, evaluating storage of materials, and identifying preservation actions needed to keep collections in the best possible conditions. We also seek expert advice to review and update policies and procedures and set goals and priorities for public access to the collections.
