Pepperdine University Libraries: Developing a Sustainable Preservation Environment for Humanities Collections

Upgrading climate and security systems, including HVAC, lighting, fire suppression, shelving, and building envelope improvements in Pepperdine’s Special Collections and University Archives, which house rare books and manuscripts informing history, literature, religion, and other humanities topics.

The previous receipt of NEH funds for a Planning grant resulted in consultant recommendations for improving quality and sustainability standards for Pepperdine University Libraries' Humanities Collection. The University is requesting funds for an Implementation grant to support the renovation of a dedicated preservation environment for Pepperdine's history rich Special Collections and University Archives. This preservation environment will include sustainable preservation systems (mechanical, lighting, fire suppression, shelving and structure) that will extend the usable life of our rare and valuable materials while also serving as a demonstration space for feasible, affordable preventative preservation at other medium-sized institutions.
