Scrapbook Preservation Workshop

Friday, April 21, 2017

Scrapbooks provide a unique historic perspective on individuals, families, organizations and institutions and hence are actively collected by archives, libraries, museums and historic societies. This workshop is designed for individuals who are interested in the preservation and care of scrapbooks. Whether you oversee the care and handling of scrapbooks or work directly with them at your institution, this workshop will address access, conservation, reformatting, and description as it relates to these unique books. This workshop will cover: A short history of scrapbooks; Guidelines for providing intellectual and physical access to these materials; Care and handling of albums and scrapbooks; and Guidelines and best practices for exhibition and storage Attendees are welcome to bring one scrapbook from their collection to review with the instructors and attendees. This interactive session will be used to discuss “real world” issues and apply the lessons learned during the day.
