Attics to Archives; workshops show you how to care for your family history

Author: Michelle Breen

In almost every home, you'll find them boxed away on the top shelf of the wardrobe, under the bed, in the attic. They are our stories, told through aging photographs or fragile family documents. Exactly what do you do with these family treasures?

To find the answers, you can now sign up for a two hour workshop hosted by UL Library’s Technical and Digital Services, and the Special Collections and Archives Departments.

This hands-on workshop, "Attics to Archives: Caring for your Family History" will be taught by experts in the areas of archival, preservation and digital curation methods. It will share simple techniques to organise, digitise and share your family records, and introduce you to useful preservation tools and materials. It will be held Wednesday, 24 August from 10 am to 12 pm, or from 2 pm to 4 pm. It is free to the public with pre-registration and participants are invited to bring their family treasures for preservation advice.
