Preserving Artifacts of Free Speech: Caring for Political Memorabilia

Just in time for the mid-term elections, join us in a conversation about caring for political memorabilia, such as broadsides, posters, banners, buttons, pins, bumper stickers, decals, and plaques. Many political materials are ephemeral, made out of poor-quality materials and not meant to last more than a few months. How do we preserve such items in our repositories? In this session we will discuss real-life examples of political memorabilia and solutions for their preservation. Suggested materials and supplies will be offered, focusing on a cost-effective and simple collections care approach.
