Proposed Collaborative Research Project:

Climatic Differences in Library Material Storage Conditions

Tom Clareson, LYRASIS

and Ian Bogus, University of Pennsylvania

PAN Meeting

Philadelphia, PA

January 24, 2014


Overview of the project
Overview of the Project

  • Recognizing the growing interest in shared print repositories

  • What has been missing from the conversation is the influence of the environment on master backup volumes

  • Identify books commonly held by library partners in separate climatic regions in the U.S

  • Bring the materials together for simple analysis


Project goals
Project Goals

  • Gain a better understanding of how books have aged

  • Analysis will inform collection, storage, digitization, and preservation priorities

  • Results will be used to make generalizations about condition that can be used for informed decision-making


What information do participants want from this study
What information do participants want from this study?

  • Brightness test (darkening)

  • Fold test (paper flexibility)

  • Strength/burst test (strength)

  • Place of publication (paper production differences)

  • Date (differences in age)

  • Condition review (general condition)

  • Availability (trusting WorldCat numbers)

  • Other information you would like….?


Determining the study sample
Determining the Study Sample

  • Time Period

    • 1840-1950 Timespan or other date range?

Partner roles
Partner Roles

  • Knowledge about conditions their collections were stored in, and the facilities (e.g., air conditioning installed in 1963)

  • Large enough collection to have overlap with partners for adequate sample size

  • Who will be Principal Investigator/Lead?

  • What costs will be incurred by partners, PI?


Other research issues
Other Research Issues

  • Who will perform the tests on the materials?

  • What is the timeline for the project?

  • Planning and Implementation in same grant, or just Planning Grant to start?

  • Potential Funders: IMLS, NEH, others?


Next steps
Next Steps

  • Meeting of interested parties this afternoon at Penn
