Paper Conservation – techniques and tricks

Interested in learning more about conservation activity at the University? Come along to our Pop-Up Library Session at the Main Library tomorrow, Tuesday 30th at 10am and take the opportunity to talk to Emma (Conservation Officer) and Ruth (LHSA Manager) about their work at the University and the techniques involved in conserving and caring for our many collections.

Based in our studio within the Centre for Research Collections, our remit is to guide and support conservation and preservation activity across the many and diverse rare and unique collections held by the University. This work can include undertaking practical conservation treatment of paper-based items, as well as the preventive care of the wider collections.

We hope to see you tomorrow. There may even be the chance to have a go at some conservation techniques yourselves….
