Archival Technician

In my roles of Historical Document Consultant and Document Specimens Compiler, I have often performed technical archival work, such as testing ink and paper. I also have cleaned, deacidified, encapsulated, and repaired documents and books. In the accompanying photo I am "tipping in" an added page to a personal journal, using archival glue and a tool known as a bone folder. In the next photo I am examining the famous Bondwoman's Narrative manuscript. (See also Antique Restorer and Disaster-Recovery Archivist.)
