Oct: Housing Solutions for Objects in Collections (ALCTS)

Wednesday, October 1 
11 am Pacific | 12 Mountain | 1 pm Central | 2 pm Eastern

Drawing on their experience housing complex objects from the Special Collections at New York University Libraries, including artists’ books, theater props, artwork, realia, and personal effects of important persons, the presenters will describe specific techniques for creating custom housings. The presenters will discuss considerations taken into account in approaching housing treatments, such as the objects’ composition and condition, as well as information from archivists and librarians regarding the objects’ context and known or anticipated use.
