The Alaska State Library Archives and Museum (SLAM) project is in the construction phase, with opening of the new building planned for June 2016. We are preparing collections for exhibit. There are approximately 22 interpretive areas, around 90 exhibit cases, and roughly 2,500 objects. As I write this, we are beginning the ninth physical layout. Here are some of the conservation tasks identified from the first layout and a glimpse of our process. I hope to post regularly for each of these sections. Stay tuned!
