Archival Preservation Analysis: An Assessment to Determine Best Practices for the Library Archives Collections

A preservation assessment of the college's institutional records, rare books and publications, and a special collection of material documenting the history of 20th-century American musical theater, including sheet music, scores, playbills, and sound recordings.

For this project, a consultant will perform a general preservation assessment of the collections in the USF Library Archives. The consultant will visit the USF Library and spend time evaluating the policies, practices and conditions of the Archives' materials. From this evaluation, they will then create a report that includes advice, guidelines and action plans for future work within the collections. This project will also provide funding for the purchasing of appropriate preservation supplies so that Archives' staff can properly complete the tasks in the action plans. The assessment and supplies will both be important components in the continuing effort to preserve the unique and historical materials located in the USF Library Archives.
