Orman Collection Improved Collections Storage Project

The purchase of preservation supplies to rehouse a collection of approximately 200 American Indian artifacts, mainly from the Southwest. They include objects made of leather, skin, fur, and feathers, as well as items of clothing. Some highlights are 45 Navajo rugs and 40 pieces of Pueblo pottery from the early 20th century and a group of Western Apache baskets dating from A.D. 600 to the 1930s. In addition, environmental monitoring equipment would be installed in the archives, and two consultants would train the staff in handling ethnographic materials.

The grant will support the purchase of preservation supplies to rehouse the Orman Native American Artifact Collection, which includes approximately 200 pieces of Native American art and artifacts. A datalogger will be purchased to monitor environmental conditions in the Orman storage area. The grant will also support training for the staff in the care and handling of artifacts, construction of pot rings, standard registration methods, and use of the datalogger. The goals of the conservation project are derived from recommendations from a 2012 general preservation assessment funded by NEH's Preservation Assistance for Smaller Institutions program.
