Caring for Oversized Manuscripts, Architectual Records, and Art on Paper: Webinar (12/13/17) 

Blueprints, movie posters, regional maps - many libraries and archives have a range of oversized works within their collections.  This webinar will cover the preservation of large works on paper and other supports commonly found in archival collections.  Strategies for safely handling, transporting, and storing these works are presented.  Some history of production and materials will also be 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.
