PG-51304-11

University of Montevallo (Montevallo, AL 35115-3732)
Carey Heatherly (Project Director: 05/20/2010 to present)

Continued Improvement of the University of Montevallo's University Archives and Special Collections

The purchase of preservation supplies to provide better care for the Carmichael Library's archives and special collections, documenting the history of the university and women's education in Alabama. The archive includes a collection of dolls created by the Works Progress Administration's Alabama Visual Education Project and the Olmstead Brothers' original design for the campus, a designated National Historic District.

Carmichael Library proposes to continue working to preserve its University Archives and Special Collections. A previous NEH PAG allowed us to hire a preservation consultant, to evaluate our collection and building, and to purchase basic, but necessary supplies. The consultant created a detailed report and recommendations for us. The archivist and library director have capitalized on this information and now seek to secure additional funding. This grant is to purchase much needed furniture and supplies so that we may properly house our rich and unique historical collections.
