Seton Health Archive Preservation Project

A general preservation assessment and purchase of storage furniture and supplies to rehouse 246 linear feet of correspondence, memoranda, files, financial records, photographs, audio and videotapes, and other archival materials related to the history of two Catholic hospitals and a nursing school in Troy, New York, from 1848 to the present.

Seton Health System Inc. (Seton Health) requests support for a general preservation survey of its archives. The goal is to plan for the preservation of the collection. The survey will be used as a planning document and will identify short-, medium-, and long-term preservation priorities in the context of Seton Health. In addition, Seton Health proposes the acquisition of storage supplies and equipment, including: shelving (five units), document boxes (35) and heavy-duty acid-free file folders (100). These items will help to ensure the integrity of the paper collection and make it more accessible for research.
