University of Miami Libraries Conservation Laboratory Presents: Board Slotting

The current exhibition on view in the Otto G. Richter Library lobby takes visitors behind the scenes of the UM Conservation Laboratory, where damaged books are revivified.

Board slotting is one innovative repair technique that utilizes state of the art equipment and trained professionals to support the mission of special collections by making previously unaccessable books available for classes and scholarly research.

This exhibition is on view during library hours.
