Rosenthal Library Special Collections and Archives Preservation Assessment

The hiring of a consultant to conduct a preservation assessment and the purchase of archival supplies to better care for the college's archival, rare book, and manuscript collections at the Rosenthal Library. The archival collections include material important to the study of civil rights, regional politics, literary history, and the performing arts. The book collection dates from 1560 to the present and includes early and first editions of authors affiliated with the Algonquin Roundtable.

This project aims to provide a professional preservation consultation of our entire collection within Special Collections & Archives. With this consultation, the department will be able to receive professional knowledge of the proper preservation and conservation techniques that should be applied to our collections. Our collections help to document the history of our institution and after years of neglect, a professional consultation is needed in order to properly and carefully preserve our collections.
