The purchase of preservation supplies to rehouse bound volumes in poor condition held in the Library’s Special Collections.

Special Collections, a unit within Randall Library''s Center for Southeast North Carolina Archives and History at the University of North Carolina Wilmington, seeks a follow-up Preservation Assistance Grant (PAG) to support the purchase of preservation supplies in order to implement a recommendation made in a preservation survey assessment funded by a previously successful PAG. Specifically, this project will focus on implementing a recommendation pertaining to Special Collections'' book collections in which it was suggested that staff "rehouse damaged volumes, currently in envelopes, in phase boxes or wrappers for better support." Using purchased supplies, Special Collections staff intend to focus activities on creating preservation housing for approximately 664 items in its Southeast North Carolina Collection, which contains rare, published works pertaining to the history and culture of this geographically unique region.

The Special Collections Department of the J.

The transfer to digital format of 2,350 hours of analog audio recordings from seven collections held in the university's Southern Folklife Collection, which documents the history and culture of the region through music and oral history.

The materials will be processed and cataloged according to national and local standards and be made available to researchers in the Wilson Library reading room. Based on prior audio preservation experience we expect to preserve and make accessible 2350 hours of audio recordings over the two-year period (a ratio of three hours studio time to one hour playtime).
