This webinar will cover common storage and housing recommendations, handling and access, and general considerations for preservation in exhibits for books. You will leave with a better understanding of the structure of a book, common materials used in bookmaking, and how these elements play a role in preserving these materials.

Have a question for a conservator? This program will include plenty of time to ask questions of CCAHA Senior Book Conservator Eliza Gilligan. Questions with photographs can be submitted prior to the webinar by emailing There will also be an opportunity to ask questions live during the session.
