The collection of the Goldstein Museum of Design will be preserved for future generations with help from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS). Connecting to Collections Bookshelf is a core set of conservation books, DVDs, and online resources donated by IMLS, the primary source of federal funding of the nation's museums and libraries.
IMLS with cooperation from the American Association for State and Local History (AASLH), chose the Goldstein as one of the first to receive this essential set of resources based on an application describing the needs and plans for care of its collections.
"We are so thrilled to receive the bookshelf and valuable resources as we have a large and diverse collection that actively contributes in our mission of teaching, research, and exhibition of design," said Lin Nelson Mayson, director of the Goldstein Museum. "We are continually looking for ways to maintain and enhance our collection -- the core of our institution."
