Focusing on Photographs: Identification & Preservation at Atlanta University Center

September 18th, 2012
The Conversation Center for Art and Historic Artifacts are presenting a symposium on "Photographs: Identification and Preservation" on October 23rd and 24th. Hosted and co-sponsored by Atlanta University Center & Robert W. Woodruff Library, the weekend will "focus on the fundamentals of identifying and caring for photographic collections. Through lecture and hands-on demonstrations, topics will be intertwined over the course of the program to give participants a holistic view of identifying photographic materials, housing and caring for these collections, developing appropriate handling and display procedures, and establishing safe storage environments." More information about this program and online registration will be available soon at www.ccaha.org/education/program-calendar.
