Environmental Monitoring and Planning Project

The purchase of equipment and training by a conservator to establish an environmental monitoring program and improve the care of archival and material culture collections, which number over 18,000 items and document the history and heritage of eastern North Carolina farming communities and the region's involvement in the tobacco industry.

The Environmental Monitoring and Planning Project will allow staff to purchase necessary equipment to monitor the collection storage and exhibit space. The data gained will help the staff to prioritize storage and collection needs in order to develop short term and long range plans to stabilize the collection of artifacts and documents.
