Records Preservation

Detailed Description

Older materials and recently arrived items in the Field Records Collection are in various states of preservation and documentation. In the current reorganization project, items are inventoried for content, transferred to archival storage containers, and archived as shelf items (notebooks and file folders), flat files (maps and diagrams), or in rolls (large-format maps and charts). Online, searchable descriptive inventories of each collection allow users to identify and request specific items for examination.
