Surface Cleaning Techniques for Paper-Based Materials (In-Person)

Instructor  | Bexx Caswell-Olson, Director of Book Conservation, Northeast Document Conservation Center (NEDCC)


Please join New England Archivists for this hands-on workshop, taught by NEDCC's Director of Book Conversation Bexx Caswell-Olson, where participants will learn about various surface cleaning methods that can be safely used to clean books and paper. Using a combination of lecture and live demonstration, the pros and cons and appropriate applications of each method will be discussed. Each participant will receive a supply kit and will have the opportunity to participate in a unique hands-on experience. This class is appropriate for anyone charged with the care of paper-based collections – no previous conservation experience is necessary.
