(Book and Paper) 2018 Book and Paper Wiki Discussion Session

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The Book and Paper Wiki is a collaborative knowledge base of conservation techniques that belongs to all of us. Please come to the 2018 Book and Paper Wiki Discussion Session to keep updated about its progress. We will acknowledge the people who have made contributions, demonstrate new and improved Wiki pages, and gather suggestions for improvement on the Drying and Flattening chapter. Attendees will be invited to comment what the Wiki should focus on in 2018-2019.

The 2017 Book and Paper Wiki Discussion Session in Chicago provided energy, inclusion, and focus to the continuing effort to make the Wiki as relevant as possible. We discussed reformatting and updating chapters; how to deal with outdated (historical) treatments, materials, and terminology; and the importance of including images and videos. With the help of a group of volunteers, we have been following through on your input with great success.

This has been the best year yet for the Book and Paper Wiki.  Let's keep the momentum going. The feedback that we receive during these sessions is invaluable in planning for the future of the Book and Paper Wiki and maintaining an engaged and active membership.
