We all understand the importance of saving family history, and along with photos, most people are also saving other documents and artifacts for future generations to enjoy. These preservation goals require specialized products and procedures. In this hands-on workshop, we will share professional techniques for museum-quality storage solutions for photographs and memorabilia.
We’ll talk about a roadmap called “The 4Ds” for your preservation project: Decide, Document, Digitize, and Determine (a storage plan). This framework can help you break down a project into manageable chunks. We’ll also delve briefly into the science of what it means for materials to be “archival” and explore museum standards for the storage of photographs and memorabilia.
