The University of Mississippi Museum received a grant to be a part of the Conservation Assessment Program (CAP) overseen by Heritage Preservation. CAP assists museums by providing funds for professional conservation and preservation specialists to identify the conservation needs of their collections and historic structures and recommend ways to improve collections and building conditions. Professional conservators spent two days surveying the site and three days preparing comprehensive reports identifying conservation priorities. The reports will assist the Museum in making appropriate improvements for the immediate and long-range care of its collections and historic structures.
