INF 393C Conservation Laboratory Techniques : Preservation Science and Practice
In this course, students learn collections care strategies that enable today's information stewards to protect our growing cultural record. Scientific foundations and practical exercises will address common preservation challenges, such as environmental control, mold, insects, pollutants, and light damage. Modern topics in health, safety, and sustainability will highlight the developing nature of the field. Students will evaluate preservation risks for books, paper, electronic media, and other collections materials.
Registration priority given to iSchool students. Additional seats may open up for outside students in a later registration period.
