Improvement of Museum Shelving and Environmental Equipment

The purchase of storage furniture and environmental monitoring equipment for a museum collection consisting of more than 30,000 objects, photographs, periodicals, and bound volumes dating from the early 19th century to the present related to the establishment of the university in 1892 and the history of osteopathic medicine.

The Still National Osteopathic Museum-International Center for Osteopathic History, the primary repository for materials documenting the origins, growth, and practice of osteopathic medicine (1874-present), is seeking assistance to improve the preservation of its unique humanities collection. Grant funding will facilitate the purchase of high-grade artifact storage shelving units and a hygrothermograph needed for 3,000 square feet of newly acquired/renovated space that will significantly improve collection consolidation and storage, processing, and patron services.
