I just found out about this neat organization.
The Princeton Preservation Group
The Princeton Preservation Group has been meeting several times
per year since 1983 to hear lectures on a wide range of topic relating
to the preservation of cultural artifacts, including but not limited to books,
manuscripts, artwork, furniture, photographs, tombstones, Lucy the Elephant,
costumes, videotapes, and buildings. Recent meetings have been
held in Manalapan, Princeton, New Brunswick, Morristown, and Lawrenceville.
Among others, topics have included:
Disaster Recovery: Mold and Water Damage
Preserving Ethnic Materials
Binding Rare Books
Historic Building Conservation
Digitizing Photograph Collections
Group members include conservators, librarians, archivists, curators,
historic preservation specialists, and interested others. Anyone may join.
Dues are only $5 a year!
