The State Library of Ohio is pleased to be working again with the Ohio Preservation Council (OPC) on a Special Collections Conservation Care workshop. This professional development opportunity will take place at the State Library of Ohio, June 4, 2019 from 9:30 am to 2:30 pm. Attendees will leave with an understanding of the criteria for selecting materials for conservation/preservation, basic evaluation considerations, how to find and work with a conservator, contracts and insurance and treatment documentation. Participants are encouraged to bring actual materials they are considering having conserved for an informal discussion about the range of treatment possibilities they might encounter.
Those attending the class will be eligible to apply for a Conservation LSTA Special Grant of up to $4,999 to conserve one or more items from their collection. Attendance is limited to 30 institutions. Click here to register.
