Are you a bibliophile? A student in Library Science or Museum Studies? A lover of history or ancient artifacts? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then join us for a fascinating discussion on book preservation and conservation presented by Librarians David Stokoe and Marianne Swanberry Hanley.  The Syracuse University Libraries have a vast array of collections, both that circulate and those that do not. From handwritten manuscripts on velum to the earliest printed book during the Tang Dynasty in China 618-906 AD to Gutenberg printing press books in 1455, come learn more about these special collections, why they are important and how our SU Librarians preserve them. Refreshments will be provided.
