The CARLI Preservation Committee is pleased to sponsor a workshop on Salvaging Mold and Water Damaged Library Materials in Springfield on July 11, 2017, from 8:30am-3:30pm at the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library.

The workshop will include an overview of mold and library materials including basic morphology, sources of mold, a brief introduction to health risks when dealing with mold, and options for remediation/removal.

Attendees will also learn about salvaging wet library materials, including an introduction to disaster response when water strikes and an overview of methods for drying various types of materials found in library collections – books, documents, and audio-visual materials.  The session will include a “no stress, no tears” hands-on exercise salvaging wet library materials.
