R & L Lancefield - paper conservation & book restoration

Digitisation of Archives

  • DIGITISATION CAN BE CARRIED OUT AT THE SAME TIME AS CONSERVATION WORK
  • MAKING DIGITAL COPIES REDUCES THE NECESSITY FOR THE ORIGINAL TO BE HANDLED.
  • MATERIAL IS ONLY HANDLED BY SKILLED CONSERVATION STAFF

CASE STUDY

  • A rare volume of early views of South Australia was carefully
    taken apart and then digitally copied.
  • The original binding was restored and a new leather slipcase
    made to match the style of the binding.


CASE STUDY 2:

A large collection of posters and drawings for a motor museum

Once conservation work had been carried out on the posters the collection was digitised for the client to save the originals being handled.
