Abstract: The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) awarded the HBCU Library Alliance a $365,000 one-to-one challenge grant for “The Building Capacity for Humanities Special Collections at Historically Black Colleges and Universities” project. The HBCU Library Alliance must raise $365,000 to fulfil the obligations of the challenge grant. Building Capacity is a five-year program designed to build capacity for the long-term preservation and conservation of collections at each of the member libraries. Building Capacity will offer a menu of preservation planning documents, collection surveys, treatment and rehousing services, and educational programs to the member libraries. Through this outreach, the HBCU Library Alliance will assist the libraries in building capacity for fundraising for special collection initiatives, documenting cultural heritage materials, increasing accessibility of special collection items, and promoting the humanities significance of their broad collections of rare materials and their irreplaceable cultural heritage artifacts.

AN INTRODUCTION TO HOUSEKEEPING IN COLLECTION SPACES (Public Lecture or Presentation)
Title: AN INTRODUCTION TO HOUSEKEEPING IN COLLECTION SPACES
Abstract: Housekeeping plays a crucial role in the successful management and care of archival, library, and museum collections. Informed and regularly-scheduled cleaning and other housekeeping tasks significantly benefit both the health and safety of collections materials and the infrastructure that supports them. In addition, a well-rounded housekeeping program can support other essential functions of an organization, such as security, pest management, and building maintenance. This session will examine best practices for dusting and vacuuming collections objects. Discussion includes tips for drafting these tasks in a housekeeping plan, what to consider when purchasing supplies and equipment, and steps your site can implement to generally reduce dirt and dust from entering collections spaces.
