Shepherd University (Shepherdstown, WV 25443-5000)
Christine Toms (Project Director: 04/11/2016 to present)

Scarborough Library at Shepherd University

A preservation assessment of approximately 390 linear feet of memorabilia, photographs, books, scrapbooks, correspondence, manuscripts, and maps related to the history of Shepherdstown, West Virginia, and Shepherd University, originally established as a normal school in 1871.

The Scarborough Library Preservation Needs Assessment project will address the short-, mid- and long-term preservation priorities of the Shepherd University Archives and Special Collections.  These preservation priorities will be determined through a preservation survey conducted by the Director of Preservation Services from the Northeast Document Conservation Center.  The Shepherd University Archives and Special Collections have never had a preservation needs assessment completed.  The Archives contain items that chronicle the legacy of the progress of education in West Virginia, the social and academic life of Shepherd University students, and the administrative process of higher education.  The Special Collections contain items that chronicle Shepherdstown and Jefferson County, West Virginia, Shepherdstown organizations, public education, individuals and families, and Storer College. Project will start February 2017 and end in June 2017.
