Managing Oversized Materials: Care, Handling and Preservation of Posters, Maps, and Other Large Pages in Our Collections (Online)

Presented By: LYRASIS



Description: Architectural drawings, large maps, big works of art on paper, can be fascinating treasures in our collections but can also cause frustrations. How do we transport and store them? How do we display them? This two hour class is designed for those who understand, care for, and manage collections containing unbound oversized paper artifacts and large bound volumes. It will review the basics of preservation for paper collections including agents of deterioration, collections care priority setting, handling, and storage. Additionally, we will talk about digitization as a tool for display, access and preservation of these hard to handle items.
