Scrapbook Preservation: The construction and care of your precious memories

The HPL Special Collections invites you to participate in a Scrapbooking program as a part of our Preservation Week festivities. Scrapbooking has long been a popular craft and method of record keeping for families and organizations alike. As a record keeping process, scrapbooking presents its own unique preservation challenges that need to be addressed. This workshop is a two part presentation, with a webinar presented by Melissa Tedone, the Conservator at Iowa State University, and a discussion and demonstration of techniques for creating scrapbooks in ways that help mitigate common preservation issues. This talk is part of a series of presentations put on by HPL Special Collections to celebrate Preservation Week 2017.
