Pepperdine University Libraries Sustainable Preservation Environment Project

Planning for temperature and humidity control, lighting and energy usage, and sustainable architectural design for the holdings at Pepperdine University Libraries Special Collections, including materials on the history of American religion, the history of the university, and the history of southern California.

The Pepperdine University Libraries requests a planning grant of $32,735 from the National Endowment for the Humanities to fund an investigation into innovative and sustainable methods of preserving our humanities holdings in Payson Library's Special Collections. Funding for this proposal would support the hiring of nationally recognized consultants to advise on three specific aspects of rare material preservation and display, including: 1) Temperature and humidity; 2) Lighting and energy usage; and 3) Sustainable architectural design. The goal of the project is to develop an integrated sustainability plan achieved through an interdisciplinary team-based planning process that can serve as a model for other libraries. Support from the Sustaining Cultural Heritage Collections program will help us explore best practices for advanced sustainable energy use.
