Tuesday, December 7, 2021 Photographs in the Archive: Photo Album Preservation 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM Webinar Statewide

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.

Wednesday, December 15, 2021 Ask Us Anything About The New Services Model 1:30 PM - 2:30 PM Webinar Statewide
For many years, the New York State Archives has provided records management advice and assistance to all New York State local governments.  To help enhance our services, the State Archives is changing the way we serve you.  Starting January 1, 2022, the State Archives will provide services based on government type, rather than by region.  Please join us to learn how this new model will work and how it is advantageous to you. You will have an opportunity to ask questions.
