Creating an Archives Plan for the Minneapolis College of Art and Design
The funds made is possible to hire a qualified archivist to assess college archives in preparation for improved storage.
The Library staff can begin to both organize and set policies for the College Archives. The Archives will be well positioned in the future so staff can better respond when inquiries are made from within and from outside the College. With Collection policies in place, appropriate material can be added regularly going forward and policies on use of the Archives will prevent loss of valuable material.
