July Preservation Tip

Sometimes your fellow librarians are your best resource, as evidenced by the Connecting to Collections Care Online Community.  This group offers free preservation and conservation resources, webinars, and courses. In addition, they have a thriving online discussion forum, where you can ask community members for advice, as well as browse through conservation challenges that colleagues from varied libraries are facing. Want to compare vendors or choose between supply brands? Looking for tips on safely boxing fragile papers, restoring old photographs, even the proper structural support for a 1860’s ball gown lined with boning? Whether your problem is unique or mundane, someone on the forum may have the answer!

If you have topics you would like to see highlighted, or suggestions for resources, please send them to Nariné Bournoutian at nbournoutian@law.columbia.edu. Tips from previous months are available here.
