Lena LeMoal, who talked at AHA last summer about book conservation, will be teaching a course on basic book and paper repair.
I have a book in bad shape, what do I do? Learn the answer to this common question in this two-day workshop. Students will be guided through the different steps in evaluating damage to a book, tips on handling them, decisions to make as far as the type of repair, the budget, the options and the right people to call. Participants will learn minor repair techniques that they can do at home, as well as the proper materials used to preserve treasured volumes. Students are welcome to bring a book with a problem to be approached and discussed during class.
