Mechanical System Analysis and Collection Needs Assessment

A planning project to assess environmental conditions and preservation needs for the Walter P. Reuther Library, Archives of Labor and Urban Affairs, and to develop recommendations for sustainable improvements to environmental controls for the collections.


The Walter P. Reuther Library, Archives of Labor and Urban Affairs, Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan, seeks an award of $50,000 in the “planning grant” category of the Sustaining Cultural Heritage Collections program of the Division of Preservation and Access of the National Endowment of the Humanities (NEH). The award will match institutional funding to assess persistent environmental control and collections preservation problems in the Reuther Library’s original 1975 building and its 1991 addition. Current conditions present serious concerns for the long-term conservation of its significant and unique humanities collections.
