If you have already registered for this event, you will be notified of any changes. Thank you for your patience as SCKLS determines how best to support your learning needs in a safe and effective manner.

Does your library have old or fragile books, photographs or documents that you're unsure how to handle? You know they contain information to which future generations deserve access. But how to begin? Join Sharon Barnes, SCKLS technology consultant, as she guides you through preservation best practices and demonstrates techniques and materials for preserving your special collections.

In this informative session, you will learn how to:
Identify items in the library's collection that may be at risk
Understand what steps to take to protect them
Learn basic cleaning tasks that can be safely done in-house
Plan for future preservation
