Assessing 18th- and 19th-Century New Hampshire Maps and Atlases

A conservation assessment of the state library's New Hampshire and New England map and atlas collection from the 18th and 19th centuries, and the purchase of storage furniture and preservation supplies.

The New Hampshire State Library seeks $5,000 to support a collection level conservation assessment of its New Hampshire and New England maps and atlases collections. The activities entail hiring a maps preservation consultant to assess conservation needs and purchasing archival quality housing supplies to protect 150 maps and 50 atlases from the 18th and 19th centuries. The project is a continuation of a general collection conservation assessment conducted in 2002 which identified the state library's collections of early printed and manuscript maps as a preservation priority.
