Apr: Low-Cost Ways to Preserve Family Archives (Association for Library Collections & Technical Services)
29 (12-1 pm Mountain)
of us are creators and collectors of something we value or enjoy, such as
family papers, photographs, cookbooks or postcards. They are a big part of who
we are and what we do. We think about passing these collections on to our
families, even our communities. What can we do to protect our collectables from
damage even if we don’t think we have a perfect place to keep them? Learn about
possible risks from handling and the environment, and practical, inexpensive
ideas to keep collections safe to help ensure what you have can be shared for
many years to come.
