OUT OF THE ORDINARY: PRESERVING PAPER-BASED EPHEMERA Presented by the Conservation Center for Art & Historic Artifacts Providence, RI - May 2nd, 2013 Cosponsored & hosted by: Museum of Art Rhode Island School of Design ABOUT THE PROGRAM This symposium will examine the myriad of challenges faced in preserving a wide variety of non-standard paper items produced in the 19th and 20th centuries, including paper dolls, greeting cards, posters, maps, blueprints, baseball cards, miniature books, scrapbooks, and oversize objects such as posters, maps, and blueprints . The size, the use of mixed media, and the often-transient nature of these objects add to the complexity of their preservation needs. This symposium will address the need to retain basic preservation guidelines while creatively developing effective storage and handling solutions for a variety of items. The program is intended for curators, librarians, archivists, collection managers, and others involved in the care of collections that include paper-based objects large and small.
