Photographic Preservation: Strategies for Working with Physical Collections - Webinar (07/29/20)


Photographic collections are some the most heavily used resources in archives and library special collections, but they require a specialized set of skills to manage and preserve.

This webinar will provide basic historical background on photographic processes, methods for identification and preservation as well as basic considerations for digitization and exhibition. This is a great starting point for those new to working with photograph collections as well as those needing a refresher.

Virtual Trainer: Sandra Varry
