Falvey Library recognizes the importance of preserving information and / or the original artifact (book, etc.) for future generations. Measures have been adopted to ensure the permanence of materials housed within the library. Although the deterioration of library materials is a universal problem, Falvey's preservation efforts, influenced by budgetary and staff constraints, attempt to identify and treat small parts of the problem within each fiscal year.
Although library hours of operation are extended at night and on weekends, contact the Preservation department at extension 9-7966 between 8:00 - 4:00 Monday - Friday for additional information about the library's preservation efforts.
