See below for details on the 2014 SNCA Pre-Conference Workshop. Registration for the workshop and the conference will open March 1st.
On Display: Basic Exhibits for Librarians and Archivists
Description: The creation of exhibits and displays is one of the many creative tasks that librarians and archivists are called upon to do, but few have acquired this training in library school. This workshop will provide an overview of the basics of exhibit planning, design, and fabrication. Topics that will be covered include interpretation strategies, exhibit labels, physical layout and organization, conservation issues related to the display of original materials, and the fabrication and installation of exhibit components. Participants will have the opportunity to fabricate simple exhibit elements. Participants are encouraged to submit questions prior to the workshop or bring photos of display areas for which they need advice.
