Join Preservation in Action for an engaging, hands-on opportunity to help preserve local cultural heritage at the 2019 ALA Annual Conference in Washington DC! Participants will take part in a day-long preservation project with District of Columbia Public Library, Special Collections, which is in an interim space located at 1709 3rd Street, NE, Washington DC. The day will include preservation care and handling training and hands-on rehousing activities. Working with archival collections, primarily with damaged and fragile books from the division’s Cutter Collection, participants will learn about the preservation needs of these types of materials, appropriate storage, and best practices.
No experience is required. For more details, visit www.ala.org/alcts/pia2019.
