Iowa City Press-Citizen: University of Iowa museums and library working together to preserve the past

Iowa City Press-Citizen: University of Iowa museums and library working together to preserve the past. “‘Most people don’t realize that museums display 10 percent or less of their holdings,’ said Cindy Opitz, director of research collections with the UI. ‘We have a lot of research collections behind the scenes that aren’t on display.’ This year, both UI Libraries and Museum of Natural History have received grant money from the Iowa Department of Cultural Affairs to help preserve the past and make its study as accessible as possible.”
