Preservation Assessment of the Law Library

A preservation assessment of special collections housed at the university's law library. The collections focus on Indian, Mexican, and immigration law, environmental and water rights law, and historical Arizona materials.

The Rogers College of Law Library applies for grant funds to engage a preservation librarian/consultant to conduct a general preservation assessment of our special collections. The collections include: a special purchase of 16th-19th-century Roman/canon law treatises, general and local legal historical and biographical material, including unique Arizona resources such as documents from "Arizona v. California," the long-running Colorado River water case, and law college archives. No other assessment has been conducted and the timing for this proposed study is critical. The law college is preparing for a complete renovation of the library to begin in late 2007. The consultant's report will be invaluable for informed decision-making in renovation planning for new facilities and in long-term future preservation actions.
