Preservation Week 2012: Pass It On!

It is Preservation Week, when libraries and archives highlight information on how to preserve our personal and shared collections. Are you curious about how to properly store family treasures, such as letters, photographs, scrapbooks, books, and textiles? Check out some great resources for preserving these materials at the American Library Association’s Preservation Week web site. It is full of great tips on preserving family treasures, fun family history activities, and a free webinar on “Preserving Your Personal Digital Photographs” on Thursday, April 26 at 2pm Eastern. Other free preservation webcasts are available too! Go to http://www.atyourlibrary.org/passiton and celebrate this week by increasing your preservation know-how!

For those of you near the Wright State University Libraries, stop in and check out the exhibit on preserving family photographs located on the 4th floor of Dunbar Library, just outside the Archives.

I manage preservation efforts in our department, which includes implementing our preservation plan, monitoring environment, assessing collection conditions, improving housing, and developing and implementing the electronic records program with the Archivist for Digital Initiatives and Outreach. I also catalog our manuscript collections, and manage the gift books and journals. Additionally, I arrange and describe collections, provide reference assistance, create exhibits, give presentations, and assist with special events as needed.
