Proof of Life

Have you ever been in the front of class or demonstrating something and thought to yourself “am I getting through to them?” A couple of weeks ago we held our annual week-long care and handling training to show staff and student assistants what sort of material to send to conservation.

We got two proofs of life through campus mail this week…pieces of broken books disembodied from their texts. This one was a piece of an old acidic pamphlet binder that broke off, the other was a detached spine.
It’s nice to know that our pleas for broken books sank in. Thanks for listening and participating! And please send the actual items, too.
