NCPTT received a final report from a PTT Grants project, “Protocol for Emergency Washing, Drying, and Sterilization of Historically Significant Books” by the University of Utah’s Marriott Library. The research team tested recovery protocols for flood-damaged books from the 18th through the 20th centuries to determine the most effective procedures for mass-drying or sterilizing culturally significant collections.
