At the beginning of May 2011, Leslee Keys, John Nemmers, Laurie Taylor, and myself presented on various aspects of this project at the Society of Florida Archivists Annual Meeting which, fittingly, was held at Flagler College. The response to the project was very positive and I think many others who are embarking on similar projects or have architectural drawings/blueprints in their collections were able to get ideas on how to move forward on preserving those objects.
The presentations are available to view through the University of Florida’s Digital Library and are linked below.
