This thesis is a culmination of a project report for the creation of a display space for an archival collection. As a collection located on the top floor of the Western Washington University Wilson Library, much of the issues are created due to lack of traffic and attention. Their entryway was a promising area to redesign and include some display cases in order to bring more attention to their area. This thesis follows the project from its very beginning planning stages through to the first installments of furniture and area redesign plans. It speaks to those who are planning a new display area, the specific concerns for archival materials, the prospect of working with a group of archival librarians, budgeting, and creating project management timelines.
