Now! And Then? Preserving Modern and Contemporary Collections in Libraries and Archives (New York, NY)

  • October 24 – 25, 2018

Caring for modern and contemporary collections is a continually evolving challenge. The 20 th and 21 st centuries presented a vast array of new materials which have left collections staff in uncharted territory as they address unprecedented preservation problems. Colors change and fade, structures lose their integrity, and material components become obsolete. Libraries, museums, archives, and other collecting institutions must understand the long-term preservation needs of these items in order to determine appropriate priorities for conservation, storage, exhibition, documentation, and digitization. This two-day conference will explore ways to anticipate, plan for, and address preservation concerns in modern and contemporary collections.

This program is intended for collections care staff responsible for modern and contemporary materials in  libraries and archives.

October 24 and 25 at the Center for Jewish History.
