    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

    ideas to keep collections safe to help ensure what you have can
    be shared for many years to come.  ALCTS thanks Archival

    scrapbooks.  ALCTS thanks Gaylord <URL:> for
