Preserving Your Personal Papers Workshop

Preserving Your Personal Papers Workshop

December 1, 2016
6:30 p.m.
Brooklyn Historical Society

The Archive Project teamed up with the Brooklyn Historical Society to offer a workshop on preserving your personal papers. Society Archivist John Zarrillo guided attendees through the tools needed to properly store, handle, and preserve collections of papers, photographs, memorabilia, and ephemera for future generations. Whether your collection is personal, related to a specific preservation campaign, or part of a larger organizational collection, this workshop offered productive and hands-on insight into taking the first steps towards stabilizing and protecting it.

Part of the Archive Project’s mission is to document and protect the history of the preservation movement in order to ensure that an accurate account of the movement is made available for posterity. Assisting in properly archiving the papers and documents of preservationists and organizations is paramount in this mission so we were thrilled to partner with the Brooklyn Historical Society to present this educational program.
