Preservation and conservation experts from the University of Michigan Library give one-on-one consultations about caring for your treasures. Learn how to preserve items so they can be passed on to future generations. Bring some of your personal history along to get specific advice: audio and video recordings, books, diaries, electronic files, genealogical information, letters, maps, photo albums and photographs, postcards, prints, or scrapbooks. The right expert for the right media will advise you how to store, handle, and safely display or share them.

Lab Notebooks in the Digital Age

Christopher Faulk, U-M School of Public Health, talks about a long-neglected problem particular to academic labs — the proper archiving of lab notebooks and the data they contain. A panel discussion discussion will follow, with several bench scientists to answer questions and share examples of lab notebooks.
