Treasured objects and documents held by Missouri S&T’s Curtis Laws Wilson Library will be preserved for future generations with help from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS).

The group will present Missouri S&T’s library the “IMLS Connecting to Collections Bookshelf,” a core set of conservation books, DVDs and online resources donated by IMLS, the primary source of federal fundingof the nation’s museums and libraries. IMLS and its cooperator, theAmerican Association for State and Local History (AASLH), will award a total of 3,000 free sets of the bookshelf by the end of 2009.

“Wilson Library selects, collects, and makes available a tremendous
variety of print and electronic resources. Receiving the Conservation
Bookshelf will allow library staff to expand our ongoing preservation
efforts, particularly for older documents,” says Andy Stewart, director
of the library.

Wilson Library was chosen to receive the set of resources based on an
application describing the needs and plans for care of its collections.
