Preservation Issues for Small Museums and Family Custodians

Are you working with a local historical organization with a collection of documents and objects or taking care of important family papers and heirlooms?  If so, this workshop is designed for you.


Presented in partnership with the New England Document Conservation Center (NEDCC) this one-day technical workshop is designed for small historical organizations, small museums, and local historical societies as well as individuals who are the custodians of important family papers and heirlooms. It will cover the agents of deterioration that affect our collections (the environment, pests, and mold), as well as cover bests practices for storage and handling of archives and artifacts. Collection items that are hazards will also be discussed.
