Relocating and Rehousing the Museum's Ethnographic Collection

The purchase of storage furniture and the relocation of the museum's 6,882-item regional ethnographic collection to a new repository.

The goal of this project is to improve the environmental conditions under which anthropology collections of the Museum of Northern Arizona (MNA) are housed through the purchase of museum quality cabinetry and compactor carriages, hiring of a Move Coordinator, and ongoing consultation with MNA?s consultant conservator. As a part of this goal MNA will construct a new collection center to house 1st and 2nd priority collections in 2007/08. This goal is identified as the top priority preservation need in the MNA?s 2005 Preservation Plan and in the Collections section of the MNA 2006-2011 Institutional Plan. In addition, conservation and museum consultants (IMLS, MAPII, CMAP) have identified building and storage improvements as top priorities.
