“Preserving Scrapbooks in the Archives” will present the different structures and preservation challenges of historic scrapbooks often found in archival collections. After understanding common challenges, participants will be introduced to different simple methods to assist with handling and long-term storage of these valuable and unique artifacts. Attendees are encouraged to bring scrapbooks that present preservation challenges in their own collections for discussion.
The workshop will include hands-on work and some of the necessary materials will be supplied as part of the registration fee. Participants may also purchase an optional toolkit if needed. The day will include tours of UD’s special collections and archives spaces, lunch, and networking.
