Inherent Vice: Preserving Vulnerable Collections

Sunday, May 21, 2023

Olin Library, Kagan Grand Stair
Olin Library, Brookings Dr, St. Louis, MO

Libraries and archives are stewards to immense collections threatened by building leaks, pest infestations, and their own inherent vices. 

The Inherent Vice exhibition showcases damaged items from Washington University Libraries’ collections to explain the science behind their disrepair and what conservation efforts can be undertaken to restore them to usability. 

This exhibition was organized by Danielle Creech, Head of Preservation, Digitization & Exhibitions.
