Workshop Leader:

Betsy Palmer Eldridge, Book Conservator

At the heart of every library is the basic problem of preserving its book collections.  This workshop will look at a wide variety of solutions for protecting book materials - from catalogues and exhibition announcements to books - from the simple to the complex, from the standard to the unusual, from the traditional to the new.  Examples will be shown and the pros and cons of each discussed. Participants will make a paper slipcase for the paperback, Margaret Locke’s “Bookbinding Materials and Techniques, 1700-1920”, as a hands-on, take-home example. This information will be both interesting and useful for anyone working with books.
