If your institution houses any family history collections, chances are you have some photo albums stored in your stacks. Preserving photo albums poses unique challenges, as you need to be able to care for both the photographs inside and the book itself. In this webinar, Barbara Lemmen, Senior Photograph Conservator at the Conservation Center for Art & Historic Artifacts, will go over some basic preservation techniques to help care for photo albums in your collection. Topics covered will include handling techniques, storage and housing recommendations, and resources for dealing with condition problems. This webinar is a part of an ongoing series, Photographs in the Archive, which highlights preservation strategies for photographic collections.

Collecting institutions often have a whole army of policies and procedures. From collections to reading rooms to disasters, there is a policy for almost every aspect of a collecting institution. And once these policies and procedures are written, that doesn't mean it's over. Regular policy updates are a key step to protecting an institution's collections. How often should policies be updated? How do you establish a schedule for this? When should you update a policy versus start over? In this webinar, Amanda Shepp, Coordinator of Special Collections and Archives at SUNY Fredonia, will answer these questions by diving into the intricacies of updating existing policies and procedures and how to start the process of creating new ones.
