Symposium on technical drawings and reproductions

From: Valerie Martens-Monier <valmon65<-a>

"Technical Drawings and their Reproductions"
Koninklijke Bibliotheek and the Nationaal Archief in The Hague
6-7 October 2014

Technical drawings present specific challenges to conservators,
conservation technicians, collection managers and curators as they
are often produced in large quantities and poorly stored.  They were
treated with low regard as they were considered to be utilitarian
objects.  These collections therefore need attention, research and
exchange of knowledge.

The symposium will feature identification training classes and
presentations providing invaluable information on the following
aspects: use and value, manufacture, methodology and survey, and
conservation techniques.  Main speakers during this promising
two-day symposium will be Eva Gluck, Hildegard Homburger, Eleonore
Kissel and Lois Olcott Price.
