CONSERVATION OF SCRAPBOOKS AND ALBUMS

Postprints of the Book and Paper Group / Photographic Materials Group Joint Session at the 27th Annual Meeting of the American Institute for Conservation of Historic and Artistic Works, June 11, 1999, St. Louis, Missouri.

Conservation of Scrapbooks and Albums is published jointly by the Book and Paper Group (BPG) and Photographic Materials Group (PMG), specialty groups within the American Institute for Conservation of Historic and Artistic Works (AIC).

Conservation of Scrapbooks and Albums was distributed to those who were BPG or PMG members in 1999.

Papers for the joint session on scrapbooks and albums were selected by committee, based on abstracts. Papers were received by the compiler in the fall of 1999 following the session; there was no further peer review of the full text. Authors are responsible for the content and accuracy of their submissions and for the methods and/or materials described. Publication in this collection does not constitute official statements or endorsement by the Book and Paper Group, the Photographic Materials Group, or the American Institute for Conservation.
