Preservation Assessment of Merrill-Cazier Library Special Collections and Archives and Digital Initiatives Department

A preservation assessment of the Utah State University's library holdings, including 18,000 linear feet of textual materials, 350,000 photographs, 60,000 books, 5,300 audio recordings, and over 1,000 architectural drawings documenting the history of Utah and the Intermountain West, agriculture and natural resource management, and American folklore. These collections form the basis for the University's Digital Library with over half a million digital files arranged in 30 subject collections.

This project involves preservation assessment of Merrill-Cazier Library with emphases on the library's Special Collections and Archives Division (SCA) and its Digital Initiatives department. NEH funds will be used to support an on-site preservation assessment by a recognized library preservation consultant. The consultant will evaluate and report on the library facility, SCA collections condition and storage environments, polices, and strategies for digital collection preservation.
