Conservation and Repair of Civil War Era Newspapers

The following is a video created by my colleagues Leslie Courtois and Audrey Johnson at the Library of Virginia.  In it, Leslie and Audrey detail and illustrate the treatment concerns related to Civil War era newspapers.  They address the issue of inherent vice, which is an especially urgent concern for papers created after the advent of wood pulp paper production.  The benefits of having your precious documents treated are also illustrated.  I encourage you to take a look!
