The Exhibits Conservator works with library curators to assist in the process of selecting and treating items for display, as well as creating mounts, cradles, and other exhibit support materials. Each item must be displayed in a way that supports specific openings and protects it from damage.

Exhibit cases should also maximize space and look great! Each exhibit page describes this collaborative process and includes images of preparation and of the finished gallery boxes.
