Photographs in the Archive: Photo Album Preservation

If your institution houses any family history collections, chances are you have some photo albums stored in your stacks. Preserving photo albums poses unique challenges, as you need to be able to care for both the photographs inside and the book itself. In this webinar, Barbara Lemmen, Senior Photograph Conservator at the Conservation Center for Art & Historic Artifacts, will go over some basic preservation techniques to help care for photo albums in your collection. Topics covered will include handling techniques, storage and housing recommendations, and resources for dealing with condition problems. This webinar is a part of an ongoing series, Photographs in the Archive, which highlights preservation strategies for photographic collections.

This webinar is produced through the State Archives Documentary Heritage and Preservation Services for New York program.
