Obama's Victory Caused Spike In Demand For Newspapers
PATRICK T. REARDON | Chicago Tribune November 12, 2008
for extra copies of last Wednesday's newspapers was so high that
many newspapers responded by printing tens of thousands of extra copies
and creating special keepsake editions or posters that were inserted
into their Sunday newspapers three days ago.
Lines snaked around newsstands and outside newspaper offices last week
as people clamored for a piece of history. The front pages are in such
demand that the Poynter Institute is producing a book that showcases a
collection of 75 front pages commemorating the election of Barack Obama.
So, if you snagged one of those commemorative newspapers, magazines or
posters and you want to preserve it, not only for yourself but for your
children's children, what do you do?
Here's the advice of Giselle Simon, director of conservation services
at the Newberry Library in Chicago.
• Keep it in a cool, dry place:
"You want to slow down the rate of degradation of the paper. So keep it
away from extreme high temperatures and high humidity. Never in a
basement and never in an attic."
• Keep it in a dark place:
Your grandmother was right to save her end-of-World-War-II newspaper in
a dresser drawer. But the wood can speed up the aging of the paper,
Simon said. So it's best to use acid-free archival boxes and folders
that can be purchased at art supply stores.
• If on display, keep it away from the sun:
"If you want to hang something on the wall, get it properly framed with
UV (ultraviolet) glass or Plexiglas to cut down on the UV light hitting
the surface. And hang it away from a brightly lit room or away from
where the sun passes during the day."
• Plastic bags, even those that lock out the air, aren't the
"Sealing something in plastic can seem like a good idea, but it leaves
the newspaper to stew in its own juices." It's better, Simon said, to
enclose the item in acid-free paper, which slows down the chemical
reactions in the collectible item.
• Never put tape or sticky notes on the paper:
As the adhesive degrades, it speeds up the aging of the paper, leaving
a dark stain, she said.
• Check the Web:
Anyone looking for more information, Simon said, can go to the website
of the American Institute for Conservation of Historic and Artistic
Works (aic.stanford.edu). One section, called "Caring for Your
Treasures," has tips on taking care of everything from documents to
buildings to works of art.
• Ask an expert:
If you want to take a more professional approach to your piece of
history, the AIC site also has a guide for finding a professional
conservator in your area at aic.stanford.edu/public/select.html.
