9 am - 5 pm

Presented by the Conservation Center for Art and Historic Artifacts

Cosponsored and hosted by: Museum of Art Rhode Island School of

This symposium will examine the myriad of challenges faced in
preserving a wide variety of non-standard paper items produced in
the 19th and 20th centuries, including paper dolls, greeting cards,
posters, maps, blueprints, baseball cards, miniature books,
scrapbooks, and oversize objects such as posters, maps, and
blueprints.  The size, the use of mixed media, and the
often-transient nature of these objects add to the complexity of
their preservation needs.  This symposium will address the need to
retain basic preservation guidelines while creatively developing
effective storage and handling solutions for a variety of items.

The program is intended for curators, librarians, archivists,
collection managers, and others involved in the care of collections
that include paper-based objects large and small.
