Drawing on the conference theme, "Out of Bounds," this workshop will expand beyond the typical boundaries of art librarianship to explore the important areas of preservation and conservation for paper-based collections. The purpose of this workshop will be to provide didactic and hands-on instruction in how to conduct basic, low-cost preservation techniques for non-rare paper-based collections. An emphasis will be placed on materials typically found in art library collections, such as large, visual monographs, smaller publications composed of a single folio, various ephemeral items in singular form or as accompanying material, and other fragile, paper-based collection items. Materials, tools, and methods will stress efficient and cost-effective strategies for librarians with limited budgets and time. Participants will receive material samples, some tools and completed work from the hands-on activities, as well as detailed handouts with techniques, materials, tools, and vendors, to serve as reference material for future work. Additionally, an extensive bibliography of sources to assist with further preservation techniques that can be implemented at their own institutions will be provided.

Fee: $48
Maximum participants: 12
