Purchase Compactor Shelving and Acid-Free Supplies for Preserving Archival Collections

An implementation project involving the purchase of storage furniture and supplies to consolidate and rehouse 3,566 linear feet of anthropological archives currently held in several locations on the museum's campus.

The Museum of Northern Arizona (MNA) requests a total of $164,858 from the National Endowment for the Humanities for a three year project to address the preventative preservation needs of archives at MNA. The goal of this project is to improve archive storage conditions while also upgrading intellectual control and increasing ease of access to these important records. Most of MNA's archival records are in dispersed storage locations and are poorly housed in acidic or unstable containers. To achieve the project goal MNA's objectives are to relocate 3566 linear feet of archives from dispersed buildings for assessment, rehousing and consolidation in the Easton Collection Center (ECC) which is LEEDs certified at the Platinum level. With NEH support MNA will purchase rehousing supplies and compactor shelving for installation on rails already in place in the ECC.
