Please join us for a tour of the "Book & Paper Conservation at Cornell" exhibit.  The exhibit showcases  both bookbinding techniques and materials, and the development of hand papermaking, two craft traditions that greatly inform and direct conservation treatment practices.  

Highlighting the work of the Cornell University Library Conservation Laboratory, the exhibition demonstrates a variety of bookbinding techniques and materials, papermaking and specialty papers used in library conservation, and paper and photograph conservation.
