Preservation Workshop and Exclusive Tour of the Missouri Historical Society Library & Research Center

SLRLN 2019 Summer Workshop

In partnership with St. Louis Regional Library Network, the Missouri Historical Society Library & Research Center will host a preservation workshop!

Assistant Librarian Randy Blomquist will present on the Missouri Historical Society Library & Research Center preservation philosophies, their preservation processes, and procedures. The workshop will include demonstrations of the creation of enclosures, oversized envelopes with slings, and custom 4 flap boxes for books using folder stock. 

Registrants will make a custom oversized flat envelope/folder for an object that does not fit into ready-made products and will create a custom 4 flap box for a book. Registrants are invited to bring one book (not large folio) and one document to create an enclosure to take home. If registrants are unable to bring objects, they will create enclosures for Missouri Historical Society Library & Research Center objects.

An exclusive tour of the Missouri Historical Society Library & Research Center Reading Room, updated technical services area, and St. Louis stacks will allow registrants to see how the Missouri Historical Society Library & Research Center shelves a variety of items.
