Recorded: Thursday, October 20, 2016

Does your institution have an archive? Is it maintained for research, exhibitions, or just the records and papers that mark the history of your institution? How do you care for your archives? Or, don’t you? Whether your archives are carefully curated or simply grew over the years, what is the best approach to preserving those important materials and how does their preservation differ from other collections that you have under your care?

This webinar will cover the basics of archives preservation within a framework of risk management. Some issues discussed will be familiar to other areas of collection care, while others will speak to the particularities of archival collections. Topics will include: storage environments, housings, care and handling, collection surveys, security, integrated pest management, disaster planning, and digital preservation.
