Amon Carter Museum of American Library Preservation Assessment

A preservation assessment of research collections containing over 70,000 print items relating to American art from the early 19th century to the mid-20th century, covering the visual history of the western United States as well as the history of photography in this country. Particular focus will be placed on 19th-century, rare, and illustrated books, including titles with original artwork. Extensively used by historians, artists, teachers, and students, the collections contain books that document the early American landscape, natural history, indigenous people, and early discovery, exploration, and settlement of the American West.

This project will yield preservation assessment on the Amon Carter library's large humanities-based print collection constituting an array of holdings of national importance that provide near-comprehensive research support in its core subjects of American art, photography, and the visual history of the American West.
