Idaho State Historical Society Preservation Assessment

A preservation assessment of 50,000 cubic feet of manuscripts and archival records, 30,000 rolls of microfilm, 500,000 photographs, 5,000 films and videotapes, 3,100 oral histories, 32,000 maps, and 25,000 books and periodicals related to the state's political, cultural, and social history from the mid-19th century to the 1990s.

The Idaho State Historical Society will contract with a preservation consultant to complete a condition assessment of selected non-book collections and provide recommendations for long-term preservation of those collections. In addition the consultant will provide guidelines for development of a small conservation program. The grant will support costs associated with the preservation consultant, including fees, travel, per diem and hotel.
