"Preserving Your History: Tools and Practices."
With Jennifer Williams

Preservation of Photos

Waltham residents are creators of art, innovators of film, and nostalgic hoarders of photos.  While we all want to ensure that we can view and share our beloved pieces for years to come, it can sometimes be difficult to determine how best to care for them. Luckily, the archives community has developed standard tools and practices to help everyone maintain their digital and paper treasures. Join Jennifer Williams and the Waltham Historical Society to learn how to properly label, store, and preserve your personal archives so that they last forever. By the end of the lecture, you will understand the various ways to protect your mementos from deterioration, computer malfunctions, weather-related hazards, and more.
