How many smaller institutions have scrapbooks and old books that have been entrusted to their care and that are just shoved in the back of a dark closet because they are problem objects? Books and scrapbooks are similar objects in many ways, but each requires different types of care. In this webinar we will explore these differences and techniques to extend the lives of these deceptively simple objects. We will look at the types of albums and books, handling these objects, housings, shelving, and more. Armed with a sound foundation, you will be able to create a preservation plan for two very common categories of materials.
