    • What to do with ‘orphan works’
    • What is considered a ‘diligent search’

    With so many 'archival' products to choose from, it's hard to know what is safe, effective and reversible. Are tags enough?

    Nicole Menchise will explore the options available to you and show you how to apply identifiers to all types of commonly found items and objects in your archival collection.
