Preservation Of Deteriorated Documents Manual, Hilary T. Seo, Carie M. Mcginnis May 2006

Preservation Of Deteriorated Documents Manual, Hilary T. Seo, Carie M. Mcginnis

Preservation Outreach and Workshops

The preservation techniques covered during the workshop included basic non-aqueous and aqueous cleaning procedures such as vacuuming, brushing, dry cleaning, and washing. Simple backing, tear mending, tape removal, and re-housing procedures were also addressed. Proper selection of treatments was encouraged by stressing that students should begin with more innocuous treatment options before implementing more aggressive and invasive options. Several treatment options were developed to deal with specific situations common to the field of questioned documents. These include: a methyl cellulose backing technique, and a modified sink mat. Methods for consolidating charred paper fragments were also explored. Remember to test all ...

Catalysts For Religious Change: Monuments Of Reformation Printing, Jeffrey Kaimowitz Apr 2006

Catalysts For Religious Change: Monuments Of Reformation Printing, Jeffrey Kaimowitz

Watkinson Publications

Guide to an exhibit held by Watkinson Library, 2006.

The Reformation is perhaps the first great historical event where printing played an essential role. Indeed, as British historian Euan Cameron has pointed out, though printing did not cause the Reformation, it “was a catalyst, a precondition,” for it made possible swift, cheap, and widespread dissemination of information.

This exhibition introduces some important aspects of the Protestant Reformation and the Catholic Counter-Reformation by displaying a variety of printed materials. On a topic so wide ranging and complex, this can only be a sketch, but it will allow the viewer to perceive ...


William Anthony Fine Binder, Peter D. Verheyen Feb 2006

William Anthony Fine Binder, Peter D. Verheyen

Libraries' and Librarians' Publications

William “Bill” Anthony (1926-1989) was arguably one of the most influential bookbinders and conservators in the US. His impact cannot be measured by his work alone but also by his legacy as demonstrated by all those he trained, many of whom are now leaders in the field in their own right. Lawrence Yerkes’ forward and Helen Ryan’s introduction to the catalog describe not only Anthony’s life and work, but also the emotional bond they had with him and his spirit that touched so many.

The German Case Binding, Peter D. Verheyen Jan 2006

The German Case Binding, Peter D. Verheyen

Libraries' and Librarians' Publications

The case (Bradel) binding is the most common, general purpose binding structure in use by binders in Germany. What sets it apart from other case bindings is that the cover boards and spine stiffener are joined together with a strip of sturdy paper before covering. This allows the covers to be fit precisely to the textblock, especially at the joint and fore-edge. For this reason the structure is also very well suited to beginners. Books using this structure are generally covered in full cloth, paper, or a combination of the two. The structure is not well suited to leather binding ...


Square Pegs, Round Holes: Thinking Creatively About Housing And Storage, Hilary T. Seo, Tanya Zanish-Belcher Jan 2006

Square Pegs, Round Holes: Thinking Creatively About Housing And Storage, Hilary T. Seo, Tanya Zanish-Belcher

Special Collections Publications and Papers

Providing proper housing and storage of archival materials is a primary goal undertaken in all archives. Standard containers for manuscripts, documents, photographs, three-dimensional objects, and other archival materials are readily available. However, for nonstandard, unusual, or complex objects that require additional support, developing housing or specialized storage can be problematic. Thinking creatively about housing and storage of archival materials increases the wealth of housing options available to archives even when a conservator is not available. Archivists can incorporate premade and traditional archival supplies in innovative ways to create structures that store and protect, while at the same time, limit handling ...
