According to the Library of Congress, historians and the public should take proper care when handling photographic materials by: Having clean hands and wearing non-scratching, microfiber or nitrile gloves; having a clean work area; Keeping food and drink away; Not marking photographs, even on the back side; Not using paper clips or other fasteners to mark or organize prints; And by not using rubber bands, self-adhesive tape, and/or glue on photographic materials. Heather Peterson is the National and State Register Historian from History Colorado and is coming to Greeley to give a presentation on caring for older photographic images. This presentation is open to museum staffers and the general public alike.
