Caring for Scrapbooks: Webinar (12/12/17) 

Scrapbooks are unique artifacts that often represent personal moments alongside local and national history. The variety of records and materials included along with the myriad methods of fastening items into a scrapbook pose significant preservation challenges. This webinar will cover the issues to consider in providing the best level of care for scrapbook collections, and will introduce the structure of scrapbooks, types of materials commonly found in them, methods of attachment, and the implications for preservation and conservation. Low-cost, in-house preservation approaches are discussed.

  Virtual Trainer: Frances Harrell, NEDCC

Along with providing training and consultations, Senior Preservation Specialist Frances Harrell serves as the co-chair of the Preservation Outreach Committee at ALA, and is the outgoing chair of the Preservation Section of SAA. She is the project manager for NEDCC’s “Digital Assessment Training: Building a Framework, Building a Community,” funded by a grant from NEH. The project will present a collaborative digital assessment training program, which will approach digital preservation and training through case-study assessments, shadowing opportunities, workshops, and a Digital Assessment Institute. She received an MLIS from Simmons College GSLIS and a BA in English Literature from the University of Florida, and has worked in both development and collections management. Starting in September, Frances will work from her office in Savannah, Georgia.
