Speaker Handouts – Preserving Family Photos and Records

The speaker on Tuesday is a retired state archivist, Melanie Sturgeon. She will be speaking to us about preservation of documents and photographs. Her handout is a little long (5 pages), so I will only be making a few copies for those without printers. I will also put a copy in the lab after the meeting so you can make copies if you wish. If you have a printer, please click on the link below, print a copy and bring to the meeting. Thank you.
