Project Overview

To provide a general conservation assessment of the college archives.

A consultant was hired to conduct a general preservation assessment, to help draft a long-range plan, to assess policies and to prepare a summary report with prioritized recommendations for the future. This was accomplished with a one-day on-site visit and a four day period to write the Preservation Needs Assessment Report. A list and action plan for future preservation actions has been prepared.
