Exploring Sustainable Practices for Cold Storage for At-Risk Collections

A planning project to develop recommendations for a dedicated cold storage environment for the university's visual resource collections (photographs, negatives, motion pictures, and magnetic media) documenting the history and culture of the Colorado Plateau region.

This project will help plan for specialized storage for the fragile visual materials. These include photographs, negatives, moving images, and magnetic media that form a significant part of the rare and original archival collections housed in the Special Collections and Archives unit of the library. Funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities Sustaining Cultural Heritage Collections grant opportunity will bring in a team of specialized experts who will work collaboratively to plan for a storage environment that will significantly deter the degradation of these irreplaceable items.
