Preservation Assessment for the John Vaughan Library at Northeastern Oklahoma State University

A general preservation assessment of the special collections and university archives, including photographs, video and audio media, and historical documents related to the Cherokee Female and Male Seminaries, the local community of Tahlequah, Oklahoma, and the Cherokee Nation; and to support staff training in preservation.

The John Vaughan Library at Northeastern Oklahoma State University is requesting a Preservation Assistance Grant to retain a consultant to survey, evaluate and report on the current and long term physical and environmental suitability of the facilities that currently house Humanities Collections within the Special Collections and University Archives departments. The findings of the preservation & conservation report will guide the NOSU Libraries strategic planning currently underway. The Library's strategic plan will address long term strategic issues which face the Library and its departments, and will direct facility & organizational planning for the next 5-10 years. Additionally, this grant will provide funding to cover expenses of the current University Archives and Special Collections staff to attend vital preservation & conservation training workshops through Amigos Library Services. This program will help ensure the long term preservation/conservation of NOSU's vital Humanities collections.
