The W. Brooks and Wanda Y. Fortune History Lab provides a rare opportunity to go behind the scenes of a real conservation lab and explore the technology used to preserve the IHS collection.

Discover how objects are made, how they look up-close and how those qualities influence the way objects age through time. See the Unfortunate Mr. Foster and learn what to do to avoid damage to your own collection. Learn to do what conservators do by trying out one of the many techniques used to safely mend fragile paper.

Visit our Conservation Lab on Pinterest to learn more about paper conservation.

Four teenagers, two little girls and one adult use microscopes to examine paper and cloth specimens. Enlarged images on computer screens.
