May Preservation Tip

This month, the TS-SIS Preservation Committee highlights the free e-journal e-Preservation Science – “scientific research for the preservation of cultural heritage.” The annual publication consists of papers on a variety of topics in preservation research, including stability and condition studies and materials/procedures information. It is a fascinating look at the more scientific aspects of preservation, as well as detailed explorations of varied artifacts. No matter what sort of formats and materials you have in your collection, there may be something of interest in their back issues!

If you have topics you would like to see highlighted, or suggestions for resources, please send them to Nariné Bournoutian at nbournoutian@law.columbia.edu. Tips from previous months are available here.
