Exhibiting Your Collections
September 27 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pmFree
Part 4 in our Pre-Conference web series. Now including exhibition of 3-D objects and textiles! Cultural heritage organizations often look to their collections to create public exhibitions, but putting the spotlight on rare books and documents is inherently at odds with preservation. Exhibits, though, provide a powerful avenue for outreach and also present opportunities for collection advocacy. Preparing collections for safe exhibition ensures that these materials remain accessible into the future. This webinar will help you understand the risks of exhibition so that you can develop policies and guidelines to mitigate those risks. Selection for exhibition will be covered, along with space considerations, safe handling, and display methods.
Join Stephanie Garafolo, associate preservation specialist, for this two hour session with the Northeast Document Conservation Center (NEDCC). We would like to thank Missouri Humanities and the National Endowment for Humanities for funding this series of programs with NEDCC.
