Preservation: Processing photographs

Have you ever wondered what happens when someone donates photographs to archives?   It depends on the condition of the photographs, but often there are several preservation-related steps that need to be taken before they can be safely preserved and stored.  We’ll show you here the behind-the-scenes processing of photographs as part of our preservation series.

The photographs in the slideshow were donated by the family of Gordon W. Prange (there are 421 photographs in total). They now reside in University Archives at the University of Maryland Libraries as part of the Gordon W. Prange Papers.
