Three book presses used in preservations

What does the Mansfield Library Preservation Department do?

Prevention, protection, and repair are the fundamental elements of Preservation work. The Mansfield Preservation Department focuses primarily on books and paper-based artifacts in both the General and Special Collections. Preservation can be as simple as storing books and other objects in a clean, cool, and dry (but not too dry) environment. It can be as complicated as tape removal, delicate paper repair, and a complete re-sewing of the text.

To learn more, go on a tour of the Mansfield Library Preservation Department on Wednesday, April 29th at 10am or 2pm. (meet in the library lobby)
