Do you have local or unique items in your archives, manuscripts, special collections or local history collection in need of a little TLC? Join us to learn about a variety of preservation strategies.
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.
Attendees will receive a supply kit (and list of handy materials) to take back to their institutions.
PLEASE NOTE: The kit fee for this session ($70) is reflected in the session pricing.
Registration for this event closes on May 9th at 11:59PM! The book repair workshops are making their final appearance on our training calendar this year. Our long-time workshop leader, Dr. Miriam Kahn, is taking a break for the foreseable future.
