New online from the University of Chicago Library.
A web version is now available of the current Crerar Library exhibit: Under Covers: The Art and Science of Book Conservation.
The physical exhibit is showing in the atrium of Crerar Library and will run until October 11, 2013.
Conservators at the University of Chicago Library keep collections safe and intact for future scholars by combining traditional craft with a knowledge of current research on processes of deterioration. Under Covers: The Art and Science of Book Conservation reveals the techniques conservators use to preserve and repair materials in the state-of-the-art Conservation Laboratory in the Joe and Rika Mansueto Library. The exhibit explores issues affecting modern and older library materials and shows conservators employing the newest scientific research in their work.
