Georgia Archives Receives Grant to Support Sustaining Georgia's
Permanent Records

The Georgia Archives is pleased to announce receipt of a grant from
the National Endowment for the Humanities to implement methods for
achieving stable environmental storage conditions for its permanent
records while reducing energy consumption and thus costs. "This
project will help the Georgia Archives continue to reduce energy
usage and serve as a model of sustainability for other institutions
during these times of budget cutbacks" said project manager,
Christine Wiseman, Preservation Services Manager at the Georgia

The award is from NEH's Division of Preservation and Access in the
category of Sustaining Cultural Heritage Collections.  The grant
funds support expanding upon energy saving measures at the Georgia
Archives initiated over the past two years by updating and further
automating the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system
(HVAC) and by implementing lighting upgrades.  The fundamental goal
of the project is to increase energy savings efforts, while
continuing to maintain storage conditions necessary for the long
term preservation of Georgia's permanent and historical records.
Archives staff will track and monitor environmental conditions as
well as energy usage, and gather data that will be of use of other
cultural organizations.
