Conservation

 

The Mendery is the Libraries’ conservation unit.  Each year, Mendery staff repair, bind or make enclosures for 10,000-12,000 items in the Libraries.  This care helps to preserve, stabilize or restore the usability of book and paper materials.

Conservation at the UW Libraries compliments commercial binding, preservation replacement and other preservation services to provide the most appropriate preservation treatment for materials.
