About the Conference:
Caring for modern and contemporary collections is a continually evolving challenge. The 20th and 21st centuries have presented a vast array of new materials that 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, archives, 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. 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.

Topics include:
• Access and exhibition considerations
• Imaging workflows for in-house digitization
• Intellectual property issues
• Collecting human rights archives
• Born-digital collections
• AV preservation
• Collecting contemporary artists’ archives
• Preserving time capsules
