The American Library Association (ALA) has declared April 25 – May1, 2021 as Preservation Week. They provide on their website a page called Saving Your Stuff, with handy tips on preserving a range of items, from audio to scrapbooks. Here at the State Archives, we work hard to ensure the important historical collections that tell the story of Texas are preserved. We share our own helpful hints on a page called Preservation Tips from the State Archives. In addition, this year we are presenting an online program from TSLAC Conservator, Heather Hamilton, who will offer tips on taking care of family treasures.
Join us as we celebrate Preservation Week at TSLAC with an informative program on how to make sure your personal archive stands the test of time. Register now for a virtual peek into the Conservation Lab at the State Archives. Caring for Your Family Artifacts takes place on Thursday, April 29 at 2:00 pm.
