The Bigger Picture: Visual Archives and the Smithsonian
Now that you're unstuck...
During the Archive's Month coverage, we sent out our first video describing how to remove photographs from magnetic, or "sticky," album. As a follow-up to that, we brought back Smithsonian Archives’ Conservation Fellow, Anna, to advise us on how to store photos once they're removed from the albums. This is part of an ongoing series we coined, "Preserving Your Treasures," which will show you some of the techniques we use here at the Archives to preserve and organize the collections of the Smithsonian. Enjoy!
