I've Got What in My Library? Caring for Non-Traditional Items

Time: 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. CST
Amigos Members: Admission is free!
Today, libraries and archives are responsible for taking care of various materials. It's not just books or paper and digital files, but also photos, art, textiles, and even taxidermy animals. Most library and archives professionals haven't had the training to work with any of these materials.
Most libraries have at least one odd object as part of their collections. Maybe it is a stuffed armadillo.
Maybe it is a commemorative shovel used in a local ground-breaking, a football from the high school championship game, or a painting of the town's founder. The majority of libraries aren't equipped to handle these so-called nontraditional objects. You can't ignore them, so what do you do?
Get some answers by attending our April 3 online conference, "I've Got What in My Library? Caring for Non-Traditional Items." Seats are still available. All Amigos members attend for free. Don't miss this opportunity to learn the best ways to handle your library's unusual objects!
