    Spotlight: The Tools of Preservation Services

    The variety of tools, materials, equipment, and supplies (not to mention the knowledge, skills, training, and techniques) required for the preservation of U.Va. Library objects is impressive. This exhibit showcases a few of the tools found in Preservation Services in Alderman, the Audio and Film Labs in Clemons, and the Dell Conservation Lab.

    The physical exhibit is on view in the Stettinius Gallery of the second floor hallway in Alderman Library.
