The purchase and installation of a secure, museum-quality metal cabinet to store oversized rare books on decorative arts in England, Europe, and the United States, which were identified as priority items in a 2006 preservation assessment. Included in the collection are more than 200 folios published between the 17th and 20th centuries and volumes that document private, individual art collections now held by museums around the world.

With the requested Preservation Assistance Grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Mint Museum Library would purchase and install a secure, appropriate cabinet with drawers and shelves for the horizontal storage of oversized rare books on decorative arts in order to better preserve and care for this collection. The metal cabinet identified, a Borroughs M60-GDV, is a museum-quality storage cabinet with locking, vented glass doors providing both adequate ventilation and a permanent, durable solution for the holding of oversized rare volumes. These items have been identified as a priority for improved storage in a preservation assessment (NEH Grant PA-51661-06) which was conducted for the institution in 2006.
