Morgan Library, Colorado State University (CSU), Fort Collins, CO

This unprecedented restoration project of the university’s Morgan Library spanned 1997 – 1999. The work entailed refurbishing 500,000 volumes of irreplaceable research journals and periodicals, enabling the library to retain its position as one of ten accredited research libraries in the U.S. The complex scope of work was accomplished utilizing 200 workers per day to catalogue damaged volumes, determine triage conditions on a per volume basis, and coordinate the receipt and insertion of damaged pages from multiple sources prior to rebinding the volumes, Dewey labeling, and restacking in the restored facility.
