Like many archaeological collections worldwide, the University of Nevada, Reno, Anthropology Museum’s Island Mountain collection has been impacted by the far-reaching curation crisis. This thesis discusses the variety of preservation needs for archaeological collections to remain viable sources of future scholarship, focusing on the curation crisis, preventative conservation methods, and best practices for archaeologists and students when dealing with delicate artifacts such as archaeological textiles. These concepts are applied to an at-risk archaeological textile from the Island Mountain collection, documenting the remedying measures taken and the analysis of the textile.
