Purchase of Storage Furniture and Preservation Supplies

Funding supports the purchase of shelving and supplies to house 7,800 films in 40 collections that date from 1903 to 1990. The corpus includes documentaries, home movies, amateur films, and a variety of other genres, including educational, industrial, commercial, avant-garde, and travel films that especially document the Chicago region and the Midwest.

Based on the recommendation of a 2007 collections and facility assessment supported by the National Endowment for the Humanities Preservation Assistance grant, CFA seeks funding for additional archival horizontal shelving and small gauge archival film cans/reels.
