Learn How to Preserve Local and Unique Items – Final Workshop
Are you looking to build on the basic book repair workshop? Do you have local or unique items in your archives, manuscripts, special collections or local history collection in need of a little TLC? If you’ve been on the fence, join us in May to learn about a variety of preservation strategies. This is the last advanced book repair session on our training calendar this year. Our long-time workshop leader, Dr. Miriam Kahn, is taking a break for the foreseeable future and we want to be sure that you don’t miss your last chance to take these workshops.
Participants will participate in decision-making and product evaluation for rare, brittle, and fragile books, apply stabilizing preservation decisions, and evaluate rehousing and boxing options. Techniques will include pamphlet binding, multiple signature binding, paper repair with wheat starch paste and Japanese paper, appropriate use of heat set tissue, and encapsulation techniques.
