A one-day workshop about the preservation and digitization practices to best safeguard the cultural heritage was held at Jafet Library on November 16, 2022. A group of rare book and special materials collectors were invited to attend. The event started with a tour of the Archives and Special Collections Department where the visitors had a glimpse of some salient collections, followed by a presentation on preservation, care, and handling of paper-based materials and photographs. Later the program culminated with a visit to the library digitization lab with a presentation on scanning techniques, trouble shooting and descriptive metadata. The visit falls into AUB libraries continuous commitment in support of art and heritage preservation.
