Gatineau的图书与档案馆向公众提供导览服务

  • 来源:

【OTTAWAZINE资讯】首都地区有许多博物馆和美术馆,但很少有地方像Gatineau的Library and Archives Preservation Centre那样公众难得一见。

这处位于625 Du Carrefour Blvd的庞大中心是保护和修复国家档案和遗产的地方,定于2020年进行重大扩建,附近会有一座新设施。

但是在过去的十年里,公众很少有机会对该设施的内部一探究竟。

不过从周二起,该中心将每月向公众提供一次导览。今天的导览已经满员,下一次定于8月23日

Restoring archival paper

Conservationists work to restore paper and books at these work stations. The vacuums in the background are ventilation hoses, designed to suck up any dirt, dust or mould from the paper so no one breathes it in. (Deborah MacAskill/CBC)

Passafiume was working to catalogue early photographs printed on metal or glass when she came across the panotype from the 19th century. Panotypes are a rare find, as the leather and image deteriorates over time. (Deborah MacAskill/CBC)
