Mike Kelly

January 11, 2010

Mike Kelly has landed a $5,275 grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities that will fund a general preservation assessment of the Archives & Special Collections that he heads at Frost Library.

In late February 2010, Angelina Altobellis of the Northeast Document Conservation Center will visit Archives & Special Collections to survey the collections. Her report will identify at-risk collection materials, address fire protection and security concerns, provide recommendations for improving storage and handling practices, and review the general condition of library and archival collections.
