Event Flyer

This event is one in a series of workshops designed to make the fundamentals of preservation accessible to the community.

The Newark Citizen Historian Initiative (NCHI) and the Institute of Jazz Studies will host Picture Perfect:  Protecting Your Prized Photographs on Thursday, January 28 from 6-7:30 p.m. in the Dana Room on the fourth floor of the John Cotton Dana Library, Rutgers University–Newark.  The workshop is free and open to the public, but space is limited. RSVP here.

Do you or your organization have a collection of photographs in need of maintenance? This free workshop will teach the basics of handling, storing, and caring for photographs and photography collections of all types.

The NCHI, an initiative funded by the Rutgers–Newark Chancellor’s Seed Grant Program, brings together local expertise from the Institute of Jazz Studies, the John Cotton Dana Library, the Newark Public Library, the New Jersey Historical Society, and the Newark History Society.  It strives to make the fundamentals of historic preservation accessible to all members of the Newark community, empowering them to take an active role in the preservation of their community’s history.  With the city of Newark’s 350th and Rutgers’ 250th anniversaries being commemorated in 2016, the NCHI is one way that these celebrations can make a long-lasting impact in people’s lives.
