Instructor:

Deborah Dunn

School:

University of Hawaii

Semester:

Fall 2014

Description:

This course is a survey of the structure and deterioration of primarily paper-based materials found in library, archives and museum collections. Conservation treatments for combating deterioration will be explored from the point of view of the librarian, archivist and museum collections manager. A hands-on approach provides the students with an opportunity to analyze the condition of various book formats, test practical treatments and re-housing options, and understand the role of conservation in a preservation plan. Students will practice beginning level treatments and learn when to involve other trained professionals, including paper, book and object conservators. Those working in small libraries will learn to establish an assessment and mending area for their collections.
