Strategies for Oversized Collections

Blueprints, movie posters, regional maps, large books - many libraries have a range of oversized works within their collections, and they can often prove the most challenging to handle and store safely.  This webinar will cover the preservation of large works on paper and other supports commonly found in collections.  Strategies for safely handling, transporting, and storing these works are presented.
