Mummy Preservation

Our mummy has been laid to rest.

The mummy had been on display here in the library for close to 20 years. In that time she was visited by campus and local community members often. Due concerns about her continued exposure to the light and her ongoing preservation, along with lack of display space with the Learning Commons renovation, it was decided it was time to see to her welfare.

She is now at rest in our climate controlled art storage room. We took every care to make sure she would preserved in line with the best practices of the day. And, we feel certain that any curses have been lifted since she is back in the dark where she longed to be.
