Last Event: Monday April 24 All Day

As part of Preservation Week, April 23-29, Arizona State University conservator Suzy Morgan will lead group tours through the ASU Library conservation lab for up-close demonstrations of the work entailed in library book repair and collections maintenance.

Morgan and her team will have examples of the types of book repairs they perform and the types of materials and tools they use to revive and bolster vulnerable materials, ensuring their sustainability for generations to come.

It is estimated that some 630 million items in collecting institutions require immediate attention and care; therefore, the goal of Preservation Week is to raise awareness about the urgency of preservation, why it is needed and what you can do, individually and as a community, to preserve both shared and personal collections.

Tours will be 45 minutes long and will be offered at 1 p.m., Monday, April 24, and at 10 a.m., Tuesday, April 25.

RSVP is required.
