Caring for Family Treasures

Image Picker for Section 0

Our recent series offering tips on Caring for Family Treasures for our UD community and beyond has been widely distributed. These e-blasts were written primarily by our students and published weekly. As noted in our premise: While those of us in the conservation department are working from home, we are finding comfort in our family heirlooms and treasures—many of which require our attention… While we all turn to our family treasures during these trying times, the conservation department would like to share tips on ways to care for your personal collections. We have shared these posts with alums, friends, donors, high-school counselors and teachers, colleagues, and other groups, and posted links to the series on our social media. The response has been overwhelmingly positive. Here is a full list of topics, with links to the individual posts:
