Library goers can pick up tips on the gentle art of caring for their collections at a library exhibition celebrating the first National Preservation Week, May 9 – 15, 2010.
Gentle Touch: Practical Ways to Support Scholarship, will be on display in Regenstein Library, May 7 – May 16, 2010 and available online indefinitely.
To accompany the exhibition, a series of helpful preservation tip sheets were developed by Annie Peterson, Library and Information Science student from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, as part of her spring semester practicum project. We'll post each of these tip sheets on our blog in the next several days - we welcome you to visit us through out the week to download each one of them!Download the first of our preservation tip sheets by clicking on the link below! The document will open as a PDF file, which you can save to your computer or print for your records.
National Preservation Week is co-sponsored by the American Library
Association, Library of Congress and other cultural heritage
organizations to highlight the importance of preservation in sustaining
personal and shared book collections.
