Materials are moving in to the new University Archives and Special Collections space at Cowles Library. The new, 6,000 sq. ft. area includes a large climate-controlled storage unit for archival preservation. Special Collections materials — which include artifacts from Drake’s history and many rare and unique documents and items — have been scattered throughout the Library in file cabinets, boxes and “piles o’ stuff.” The new area will also hold the papers of Senator Tom Harkin and be the site of a mass digitization project for the papers of Iowa Governor Robert Ray. Not everything will move today, but it’s an important milestone for the Library and Drake University. Here’s a few pictures:
