ASC Hosts Celebration of Mine Map Preservation Project

The University Library System announces today the commitment of $200,000 from CONSOL Energy Inc., the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection California District Office (PA-DEP), and the United States Department of the Interior Office of Surface Mining (OSM) to catalog, conserve and prepare coal mining maps held by the Archives Service Center for digitization. This collaborative effort will impact mine safety, mining operations, land reclamation, new development, and research. CONSOL Energy Inc. first began placing mine map materials with the Archives Service Center in 1991.
