Preservation Services

The mission of Preservation Services is to ensure that the resources collected in support of research, teaching and learning at Colorado State University Libraries remain available for long-term use.

Preservation Services is responsible for the care and maintenance of the Libraries physical collections. Services include repair and rehousing of library materials, in-house conservation treatments, and preparing items for commercial re-binding, shelving and circulation. Services also encompass planning and managing a program for an extensive range of conservation treatments for the Library’s Archives and Special Collections materials including basic stabilization, cleaning, and complex conservation treatments for paper-based materials.

Preservation Services contributes to outreach and preservation awareness efforts for campus and community patrons, serving as a resource for a wide range of preservation, and conservation issues; including engagement with emergency planning and recovery activities for the physical collections, and providing environmental monitoring.
