    Abstract:
    This grant to the University of Colorado Museum of Natural History would provide funding to bring together a team of experts in preservation, sustainability, engineering, pest management, and environmental control to develop plans for creating a microenvironment for the storage of sensitive museum collections. The plan will include designs for a heating, ventilation and air conditioning system and building envelope improvements for two spaces within the museum structure. These rooms will be used to house the museum's pottery and textile collections, which are at risk in their current state and are the top priority for an improved preservation environment.
    Notes:
    Planning for the creation of storage microclimates to improve the preservation of Navajo textiles and Native American pottery held in the anthropology collections of the University of Colorado Museum of Natural History.
