About this Exhibit
Conserving and Preserving Our Collections
WITH OVER 27,000 PRE-1900 BOOKS, the official records of the College, and the private papers of illustrious figures in our special collections, the John M. Kelly Library has the responsibility to ensure their continued accessibility and use. With this in mind, the Library developed and built the Conservation Studio to preserve and conserve our collections. The opening exhibit in 2017 focused on materials housed in the Kelly Library and explored conservation methods that could ensure the longevity of these materials.
