Preservation & Conservation Banner

Joyner Library’s Preservation and Conservation Unit ensures continued accessibility of library and archival materials by performing a variety of treatments on circulating, reference, reserve, rare and special collections materials. Treatments performed on circulating materials may include mending, cleaning, encapsulation, pamphlet binding, in-house construction of protective enclosures, and sending to the off-site contract bindery for re-casing. Due to their intrinsic value, rarity, uniqueness or age, the conservation of archival and special collections materials is handled differently than the treatment of circulating materials. Staff and students who perform treatments on archival and special collections materials follow guidelines as outlined by the American Institute of Conservation of Historic and Artistic Works (AIC), and use specialized tools and supplies.
