Improvement Plan for the Long-Term Preservation of Computer History Museum Collections

A planning project to hire an objects conservator and an engineering consulting firm to evaluate optimal environmental parameters in two buildings housing the largest international collection of computing artifacts in the world, encompassing computer hardware, software, documentation, ephemera, photographs, oral histories, and moving images.

The Computer History Museum (CHM) is home to the largest international collection of computing artifacts in the world, encompassing computer hardware, software, documentation, ephemera, photographs, oral histories, and moving images. Its mission is to preserve and present for posterity the artifacts and stories of the Information Age. CHM reaches an international audience of academic and humanities researchers, educators and students; industry innovators and filmmakers as well as other museums, archives and libraries. Through a National Endowment for the Humanities Sustaining Cultural Heritage Collections Planning Grant the Computer History Museum will create a plan aimed at long-term sustainability of the artifact collection by identifying energy-efficient environmental improvement options for CHM facilities. The plan will be used to set work and budget priorities as well as solicit funding for actual improvements.
