Preservation Housing and Storage for McArthur Public Library's Special Collections

Funding supports the purchase of archival enclosure supplies and storage furniture as recommended by a preservation professional who performed a general preservation assessment. The library's special collections include a wide range of media, including monographs, photographs and negatives, scrapbooks, stereographs, and postcards, as well as maps, prints, paintings, manuscripts, and artifacts.

This project is for housing and storage of the various components of the Special Collections of the McArthur Public Library in Biddeford, Maine. The primary goal is to purchase archival storage enclosures for as much of the Special Collections material as possible, and to replace the worst-worn enclosures already in use. The secondary goal is to purchase a unit in which to securely store our oversize materials, which must be stored in a public area due to current space constraints. The final goal is to begin to purchase sturdy, appropriate shelving for the storage of our materials.
