Scheduling a Preservation Lecture

How to Schedule a Preservation Lecture at the National Postal Museum

Linda Edquist, the Museum's conservation specialist, offers to lecture interested groups on the basics of object preservation:

  • climate (temperature and humidity)

  • lighting

  • housing

  • handling

  • mounting

for storage, shipment and display.

Special emphasis is given to philatelic collections but non-paper objects are also discussed. The lecture can be tailored to address special interests.
