PG-50523-09

University of Montevallo (Montevallo, AL 35115-3732)
Carey Heatherly (Project Director: 05/19/2008 to present)

Assessment of the University Archives and Preservation Plan at the University of Montevallo's Carmichael Library

A preservation assessment of the university archives and special collections documenting the history of the university and women's education in Alabama. The records also include the Olmstead Brothers' original design for the campus, a designated National Historic District.

The Library proposes to hire a Preservation Services Librarian, from SOLINET (Southeastern Library Network), as a consultant. This consultant will spend one and a half days evaluating Carmichael Library's preservation practices and policies. Also, the consultant will evaluate the condition of materials housed in the University Archives and the area used for housing. As a result of the visit, the consultant will produce an extensive report and submit it to Carmichael Library's Archivist and Director. The Archivist and Director will work to order supplies and equipment and to institute new practices recommended by the consultant. The goal of this visit is to facilitate Carmichael Library's creation of a functional research Archives, both physical and digital, and to insure each items longevity.
