Location: Library of Congress James Madison Memorial Building, Dining Room A, Sixth Floor
About the Event:
Conservators will highlight basic preservation measures one can do at home for long-lasting albums and scrapbooks; enumerate the pros and cons of dismantling old scrapbooks and albums in poor condition; and discuss how to address condition problems. Digital archivists will cover preservation considerations for digital scrapbooks and albums. Staff from the Library’s Veterans History Project will share information on how to participate in the Project.
This event is one of a number of activities sponsored by the Library of Congress in celebration of National Preservation Week: Pass It On (April 21-27, 2013) to share preservation strategies that help people care for their personal materials—and thereby pass them on.
