LPC November meeting

NOV 3rd MEETING
We have a guest speaker, Sherry Williams, from the Spencer Research Library at KU.  Her topic is “Taking Care of Photographs” discussing the photographic preservation, with practical advice on how to handle, store and manage photo collections.  Sherry is the Curator of Collections and Curator of the Kansas Collection at Kenneth Spencer Research Library.  As part of these duties she works with approximately one million historical images documenting Lawrence, Kansas, and the region.  While not a photographer herself, she appreciates the work of photographers and the role they share in documenting society and the challenges we all face in preserving our visual heritage.
