Developing a Comprehensive Collections Preservation Master Plan at the Maxwell Museum of Anthropology

The development of a collections preservation master plan to re-organize and upgrade current conditions for collections stored across multiple environments, and that include archaeological, ethnographic, and osteological materials, as well as archives documenting cultures of the American Southwest.

With the development of a Comprehensive Collections Preservation Master Plan, the Maxwell Museum will identify long-term, sustainable preservation practices to reorganize and upgrade its 24 different collection spaces into micro-climates that will help control for the various material types present in the collections. In particular, team efforts will focus on developing sustainable means to address humidity fluctuations in storage areas through identifying next steps to be implemented.
