Developing an Energy Efficient and Sustainable HVAC System at the Archives Research Center

A planning project for improved climate control and the installation of a fire suppression system for the Archives Research Center vault, which houses extensive collections on American musical culture, national cultural and educational organizations, and the history and administration of the University of Illinois.

The University of Illinois seeks a Sustaining Cultural Heritage Collections planning grant to analyze the existing climate control system for the Archives Research Center (ARC), as well as evaluate the performance characteristics of the storage vault area to develop a plan for improved operation, effectiveness and energy efficiency. Planning for the installation of a fire suppression system would also be included. This planning grant is a critical step towards improving the preservation of one of the most valuable and unique collections held by the University of Illinois Libraries, which is currently stored in a less-than-ideal environment with no available fire suppression.
