Full Description

Scrapbooks are unique artifacts that combine personal and historical records, often representing family moments alongside local and national history. This webinar will discuss the issues to consider in providing the best level of care for scrapbook collections. The webinar introduces the structure of scrapbooks, types of materials commonly found in them, methods of attachment, and the implications for preservation and conservation. Low-cost, in-house preservation approaches are discussed.

This introductory webinar is designed for those with limited training in this subject, and those who are interested in a refresher. Staff and volunteers working with archival records and historic collections are encouraged to attend.
