Our club wants to preserve some scrapbooks that were made 30-40 years ago. They are glued or taped to heavy paper sheets. Newspaper clippings, photos, cards are all attached this way in the books. How can we preserve them without changing the aesthetics of the books?

If the books are in good condition, it might be a good idea to leave them as is. That way you keep them preserved as they were made. If you decide you want to remove everything from the original book and start fresh, we recommend checking with your local historical society to see if a product like UnDu would be safe to use on the photos and papers in the book, depending on how old they are. Archiver's has a great selection of heritage papers and embellishments that might be perfect for the new albums. Hope this helps!
