Wade in the Water: Preservation Environment Plan for the Peabody Collection at the Harvey Library at Hampton University

A planning project to assess storage facilities and develop a long-term plan to preserve the Peabody Collection of Harvey Library, one of the oldest aggregations in the U.S. of research materials supporting the study of African American history.

The William R. and Norma B. Harvey Library at Hampton University seeks support for “Wade in the Water: Preservation Environment Plan for the Peabody Collection at the Harvey Library at Hampton University.” The Library proposes a planning project to enhance the long-term preservation of its most valuable collection. A team of consultants will help the Hampton University team refine its strategy for taking corrective action. The PEP project will include site visits, meetings, and conference calls between the consultants and local stakeholders. The consultants will help the library to narrow down the strategic options and to select a realistic and achievable strategy and future improvements for preservation of the collection.
