ACRL Presents – “Exhibition Preservation Checklist: Caring for Your Collections on Display” (4/22/19)

Join ACRL for a free ACRL Presents webcast as we celebrate Preservation Week! The webcast, “Exhibition Preservation Checklist: Caring for Your Collections on Display,” will be held on Monday, April 22, 2019, from 1:00 — 2:00 p.m. Central time (11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. Pacific | 12:00 – 1:00 p.m. Mountain | 1:00 – 2:00 p.m. Central | 2:00 – 3:00 p.m. Eastern.

Exhibitions can be exciting and effective tools for community outreach and education. But even a small display presents preservation challenges for your collections. This webcast will cover preservation considerations for library exhibitions large and small, including:

  • environmental and display guidelines,
  • exhibit cases,
  • supports and framing,
  • security,
  • lending and borrowing for exhibitions, and
  • resources.
