Saving Keepsake Papers

Barack Obama's Victory Caused Spike In Demand For Newspapers

By PATRICK T. REARDON | Chicago Tribune November 12, 2008

Demand 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 answer:

"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 ( 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
