Collections conservation is the conservation treatment of circulating
library materials. We perform these treatments in the E. Martin
and Ethel Wunsch Conservation Laboratory.
How do we find and prioritize materials for treatment? Use is the
determining factor. Both circulation and processing staff members
identify damaged materials, check them out to Curation and Preservation Services,
and send them to us for care.
The books are sorted according to their primary form of damage.
This enables conservation staff to batch the repairs, which enhances
