Preservation Week Pointer #2 - Spring Cleaning

Preservation Week: April 22- 29, 2012. This week on the blog we're highlighting Preservation Week with daily pointers for preserving your personal collections.

Keeping the books on your shelves clean will increase their longevity. Dusting and vacuuming are two methods appropriate for keeping books free of dust. Preservation specialists advise particular techniques for cleaning and handling books. Consult these instructions from the North East Document Conservation Center prior to taking on this task.

Preservation Week at Dartmouth College Library is part of an annual event sponsored by the American Library Association to raise awareness of preservation issues and solutions. For more information visit our website.
