THE RESEARCH LIBRARY AT ANIMATION ART CONSERVATION
DECADES OF SCIENTIFIC STUDY AND EXPERIENCE
ORGANIZE MOTION PICTURE ARTIFACTS INTO COLLECTIONS
Do you have vast parts of your collection that remain unsorted? Do these unsorted assets limit your library in its ability to aid the company where you work?
The Research Library at Animation Art Conservation welcomes the opportunity to turn your Corporate Studio Assets, or your Private Collection of movie artifacts into usable library content.
From your collection of Animation Art and Motion Picture Artifacts, we:
• Organize Production Artifacts after Motion Picture Production wraps
• Organize Private Assets and Artifacts into a Collection
• Set up Conservation Guidelines for the long term care of your art and artifacts
• Scan your artifacts and turn them into a Digital Library
• Apply Meta-data to your assets
Preservation surveys involve a review of a collection to assess its current condition and the condition of the storage space.
This inspection can be in a museum, an archive, a library or in someone’s home.
A written report is submitted itemizing steps needed to bring the collection up to current preservation standards or to a new increased level of care appropriate with the person responsible for the collection. Advice is given to maintain a collection with greater forethought.
Periodic collection monitoring is also offered to insure proper maintenance of a collection over an extended period of time.
There are times when a collection needs to be relocated because a collector is changing homes or because an archive is being relocated from one office to another.
Animation art objects require certain types of special handling. Artwork created on cellulose nitrate with gouache looks similar to that created with cellulose acetate, xerographic line transfer and cel vinyl, but there can be certain exceptions and restraints exercised which will make all the difference to your collection's safe relocation. This includes consulting with your movers so they have a better understanding of what they are handling and how they should approach the assignment.
Consultation before a move can determine the sensitivity of your collection and protect it from hazards that might happen during relocation.
DISASTER PLANNING AND RESPONSE
A proper plan will help you manage the care of your animation art collection in case of a catastrophe.
Plans of this nature have to be customized to the facility to which they belong. Whether setting forth steps to care for something as simple as an air conditioner leak or something much worse, like a fire or collision to your external wall, a good disaster plan will set itemized plans to care for every step of your collection's recovery, including what to do first, second and so forth and who should be contacted to care for what type of specialty object.
A survey and written report can be customized for any size collection in any sort of facility or home. This includes sections on planning, recovery and resources.
