Exhibit procedures

From: Kristen St.John <kstjohn>

Here at Rutgers Special Collections and University Archives we are
in the process of re-evaluating our exhibit procedures. My questions
are for conservators and exhibits preparators who work in libraries
or archives with active exhibits programs, but I would welcome
responses from anyone involved with exhibits.

    1.  Do you review every collection item to be used in an exhibit
        for either conservation treatment or exhibits preparation?

    2.  How early prior to an exhibit opening do you review items
        for possible conservation treatment?

    3.  How early prior to an exhibit opening do you receive
        collection material that requires preparation (cradles,
        matting or framing, etc.)?
