Archives Preservation (Online)

Presented By: LYRASIS


Description: Preservation is a fundamental component to any archival program. This class will provide students with a practical approach to preserving the manuscript collections and records housed in their repositories and can significantly benefit an institution, regardless of its size or scope. The emphasis will be on stabilizing materials (for example, by removing damaging fasteners), re-housing, flattening rolled or folded documents, encapsulation, photocopying, and segregating fragile items. Through the preventive actions characteristic of collection stabilization, archivists contribute to extending the useful life of collections entrusted to their care. This class will be presented in three two hour sessions.
