Of Scrapbooks and Banners

Lately, there are more and more opportunities to attend virtual events, lectures, webinars and presentations on the subjects of preservation and conservation of heritage collections. An upcoming event is a case in point: members of staff from University Archives, the Preservation Lab, and Advancement have put together an entertaining evening: “IU Baseball in Japan, 1922: A Trip We Can All Take!” to be held September 22 from 5:00-6:30pm EST. Paper Conservator Doug Sanders will elaborate on the conservation work needed for a scrapbook and silk banner associated with the historic 1922 trip.
