Librarians and other conservators concerned with preserving their collections must deal with not only the deterioration of older materials, but also with poorly made and costly new ones. This series of four sessions is useful for those interested in basic, minimal mending, and those that are interested in conservation and preservation. Ken’s advice is practical, affordable, and archivally sound.
This is Part 1 of a four-part series.
Part 1: Introduction and Paper Cleaning and Mending
Part 2: Treatment of Water Damaged Books and Papers
Part 3: Hinge and Spine Repair
Part 4: Protective Enclosures
