Special Projects


On-going projects include treating and rehousing nearly 100 years of campus newspapers, deacidifying and encapsulating archival materials, and rehousing collections. The Preservation Unit was awarded a 2004 NEH Preservation Assistance Grant ($5000) to have the Judge Sarah T. Hughes scrapbooks evaluated by a conservator. Begun in the summer of 2006, the scrapbooks were rehoused and page-level finding aids were created.
