I've been practicing on my portion for the presentation "You have a What? Preservation of the Unusual Objects in Your Collection."
This is one of the programs for the Texas Library Association 2009 Conference. I am presenting with Carol Roark who is the Archivist at the Dallas Public Library. The program is being hosted by Michelle Mears who is the Archivist at UNT.
I am speaking about the importance of knowing what your items are made from and on the effects of slow damage. That's a lot of info to cover in just 20 minutes. So lots of slides and quick talking.
There are some slides posted on my web site as well as a list of resources.
