Coffee break sponsored by:
The Ephemera Society of America
This one-of-a-kind symposium examines the myriad of challenges faced in preserving non-standard paper items produced in the 19th and 20th centuries, including paper dolls, greeting cards, posters, maps, blueprints, baseball cards, miniature books, scrapbooks, and oversize objects. The size, the use of mixed media, and the often transient nature of these objects add to the complexity of their preservation needs. The symposium will address the need to retain basic preservation guidelines while creatively developing effective storage, handling, and exhibition strategies and solutions for a variety of items.
