The War on Bugs

Newberry conservators systematically intercept spiders, ants, book lice, and other bugs before they can reach the treasures in our collection. We speak with conservation staff about this important (and kind of gross) aspect of their work protecting the collection, and then we join them as they patrol the deepest recesses of the library for pests.
