Materials Conservation volunteer
David Lind has volunteered in the Materials Conservation unit, one day a week, for over 2 years. He is working on a long term storage project for rare books and journals from the museum’s Research Library and Archives collections. Many of these items which date from the last century are in a fragile, damaged condition. David makes precise individual custom fitted storage boxes from conservation grade archival cardboard. Thanks to his effort, skill and patience the longevity of these significant and historic items has been greatly increased.
