Preservation of Photographic Materials (Live Webinar)

Presented by: LYRASIS

Brief Description:
Photographic materials present significant preservation concerns in cultural heritage collections. They are often heavily used and are fragile and susceptible to damage due to improper handling and storage conditions. Visual examples of photographic processes and deteriorated photographs will be identified and discussed. Taught in two two-hour sessions over the course of two days, topics covered will include:
    Early photographic through contemporary print processes
    Issues with prints, color, film, glass, and albums
    Environment and storage guidelines
    Handling, housing, and security guidelines
This class is funded in part by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) Division of Preservation and Access.
