Preservation Week, this year taking place from April 27 to May 3, the Association for Library Collections & Technical Services is presenting a free Webinar, "Low-cost Ways to Preserve Family Archives." The Webinar is intended for "[a]nyone interested in practical ways of preserving archival collections, including family collectors, and curators and custodians of small to medium libraries, museums, archives, historical societies, and town offices." It is heartening to see family collectors listed with professionals as being among those interested in preserving the past.
The Webinar will discuss risks that archives face from the environment and from being handled, and some practical, low-cost ways to protect items and maintain them for future generations.
The Webinar will be broadcast on Tuesday, April 29, 2014, at 11:00 a.m. Pacific/12:00 noon Mountain/1:00 p.m. Central/2:00 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time. Register here.
The sponsor of the Webinar is Archival Products, so I am sure their products will be featured in at least some of the preservation methods.
Thanks to Dear Myrtle and GeneaWebinars for posting about this Webinar!
Genealogy is like a jigsaw puzzle, but you don't have the box top, so you don't know what the picture is supposed to look like. As you start putting the puzzle together, you realize some pieces are missing, and eventually you figure out that some of the pieces you started with don't actually belong to this puzzle. I'll help you discover the right pieces for your puzzle and assemble them into a picture of your family.
