Preservation Needs Assessment

A preservation assessment of the university's archives, including collections on the creation of Ohio's canal system, the early history of flight in America, and the history of American psychology.

This project will undertake an assessment of the conditions under which the University of Akron Archival Services and the Archives of the History of American Psychology store and handle materials. These documents consist of records of the university, collections relating to local history (the American History Research Center), and materials dealing with the history of psychology in America. Project goals include: 1) an onsite assessment of the conditions of storage and handling of materials in the repositories; and 2) a written report recommending actions for mitigating preservation concerns in a general sense (not on the collection level). Both activities will be performed by Ms. Blythe Lee, a preservation consultant, who has had prior experience with NEH-funded preservation assessment studies.
