April 29). Presented by Karen E. K. Brown, preservation librarian for the
University at Albany, SUNY University Libraries. What can we do to protect
our collectables from damage even if we don't think we have a perfect place
to keep them? Learn about possible risks from handling and the environment,
and practical, inexpensive ideas to keep collections safe to help ensure
what you have can be shared for many years to come. ALCTS thanks Archival
