Preservation survey’ being conducted at Archives
International conservators to assist with important strategy to manage conservation of Bermuda Archives’ diverse historical collections.
The Hon. Neletha Butterfield, Minister for Public Information Services, met with conservators who are here on the Island this week to assist the Bermuda Archives with a preservation survey.
Conservators Deb Wender, Director of Book Conservation and Walter Newman, Director of Paper Conservation at the Northeast Document Conservation Center (NEDCC) are assisting staff at the Bermuda Archives with the formulation of a strategy to manage the conservation of its diverse historical collections.
The Archives’ unique holdings span four centuries of Bermudian history.
The survey will assist the Archives to improve administration of its preservation programme and ensure availability of endangered archival material for future generations of Bermudians.
NEDCC is a recognised leader in the field of preservation of paper-based heritage collections.
Ms Wender and Mr Newman, who will be at the Archives through Friday, will submit a detailed report of their findings and recommendations following their visit.
