Space Planning: The Final Frontier

To support: A planning grant to develop options for an efficient environmental system to preserve 12,950 historic textiles and pieces of apparel from around the world housed in the university's museum of design.

We seek funding to plan a process of renovating and refurbishing the Goldstein Museum of Design's (GMD's) largest collection storage area, which houses textiles and non-label historic costume (apparel). The plan would be used to prepare to seek funding for implementation of the renovation and re-housing of objects stored in this storage space. We estimate this planning to take one year, beginning in the fall of 2012. As a part of this plan, the museum staff, environmental engineer, textile conservator and the UMN facilities manager would assess the museum's environmental systems, set points and policies that address the balance of environmental preservation (reducing one's carbon footprint) and create a sustainable climate in which the artifacts can be stored and preserved for generations to come. The 1,255 square feet collection storage area that will be the subject of our planning is home to 13,000 objects or approximately 45% of the collection.

The Moravian Archives Storage Renovation Project

To support: An implementation project involving the purchase of storage furniture, the replacement of lighting fixtures, and the rehousing of more than 100 art works and 450 ethnographic objects and textiles documenting the history of the Moravian Church in North America from the 18th century to the present.

The Moravian Archives in Bethlehem, Pa., (MAB), requests an implementation grant of $148,085 to renovate the storage space in the facility's larger vault in order to improve storage conditions of its multifaceted collections related to the Moravian Church in North America, detailing the history of this important transatlantic religious group from the 18th century to the present. Specific project renovations would include 1) the installation of compact, moveable shelving, 2) installation of a hanging storage system for framed materials, 3) re-housing of object collection into acid-free boxes, and 4) replacement of outdated fluorescent lighting with new energy-efficient lighting outfitted with UV filtering sleeves. These improvements would address many goals outlined in recent preservation assessments, and would ensure the preservation and continued access to MAB collections.

W. Frank Steely Library Special Collections & Archives Sustainable Preservation Environment Planning Project

To support: A planning project for a sustainable preservation environment for three special collections that focus on the history and culture of northern Kentucky and the university's archives.

The W. Frank Steely Library, Eva G. Farris Special Collections & Schlachter University Archives (SC&A), at Northern Kentucky University (NKU) requests $40,000 plus an additional $10,000 for recommended activities for a National Endowment for the Humanities Sustaining Cultural Heritage Collections planning grant. This would fund the next phase of a comprehensive plan to create and maintain a sustainable preservation environment for the long term protection of its collections. This planning grant project would result in the evaluation of the SC&A’s existing environmental climate and performance characteristics and operational practices related to the current HVAC system servicing the Archives. The results would drive a plan to develop a sustainable preservation environment with specific steps for improved operation, effectiveness and energy efficiency. The project would be a collaborative effort of Steely SC&A personnel, NKU’s Facilities Management division, and preservation research experts from the Image Permanence Institute.
