Preserving Modern And Contemporary Museum Collections: The Now On View 
December 4, 2018  
Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Philadelphia PA
Caring for modern and contemporary collections is a continually evolving challenge. The 20th and 21st centuries present a vast array of new materials that have left collections staff in uncharted territory as they address unprecedented preservation problems. Museums and other collecting institutions must understand the long-term needs of these items in order to determine appropriate priorities for conservation, storage, exhibition, documentation, and digitization. In presentations and artist/conservator conversations, this conference will explore ways to anticipate, plan for, and address preservation concerns in modern and contemporary collections.

Caring for Scrapbooks: Preservation and Digitization

December 14, 2018, 12 noon (ET)
For many institutions, scrapbooks are one of the most problematic formats in their collections. Common in the 19th and early 20th century, scrapbooks are a unique record of individuals, families, or organizations. Newspaper and magazine clippings, cards, other ephemera, and photographs were adhered to poor quality paper in improper bindings, making them a special challenge. This live online class will examine the materials and techniques used to create scrapbooks, outline quality storage materials and proper handling techniques for these special materials. We will also take a look at some digitization options and techniques for access in use today. While the focus is on older scrapbook collections, many of the same issues apply to scrapbooks being created today.
