The archiving of vintage scrapbooks and photo albums challenges museums and families alike.  Grandma’s cherished scrapbook—its yellowed pages filled with family history such as old letters, announcements/invitations, faded photographs, and/or torn newspaper clippings—represents both a treasure-trove and conservation nightmare.


Join Conservator Elizabeth Chambers and discover how to best to preserve individual album components, while respecting the integrity of the whole. During the workshop, Elizabeth will discuss the proper handling, care, documentation, and storage of scrapbooks and photo albums.  Speaking to specific examples brought in by participants, Elizabeth will explore the practical and ethical issues surrounding the care of vintage albums.
