Visitors to the Sandusky Library Archives Research Center in recent months may have noticed new map cabinets at the far end of the reading room. These cabinets, along with environmental monitoring devices (for temperature, humidity, and water leaks) for the archives storage room, were purchased with funds from a Preservation Assistance Grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
Recently we have completed transferring our oversize map and poster collections to these cabinets -- to allow for better storage of these items and to create more storage space for other materials in the storage room. The map collection, which includes early maps of Sandusky and the Sandusky Bay, among others, is available to researchers in the archives. See the Archives Librarian or any Reference Librarian for assistance.
