NYAM Old Stacks Sustainable Preservation Environment Project

A planning project to adopt sustainable preservation strategies in the center’s open stacks, housing 19th- and 20th-century medical periodicals and monographs.

The Center for the History of Medicine and Public Health at The New York Academy of Medicine (NYAM) requests a planning grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities to optimize environmental conditions in the Old Stacks, where the library’s 19th and 20th century journal collection and recent monographs are stored. For this phase of the project, NYAM hopes to work with the Image Permanence Institute (IPI) to gain an understanding of how persistent preservation issues impact the long-term stability of collections and to explore environmentally sustainable, energy efficient and cost effective strategies best suited to resolving these issues.
