Have you always wanted to know what goes into caring for our collections at the National Library?

Collecting material is only one part of the process – the material also needs to be looked after if it is to remain useable. Take a step behind the scenes to relax, watch and listen as a Library conservator meticulously creates a batch of starch paste.

ASMR (Autonomous sensory meridian response) videos focus intently on one activity. Savour the sound, the detail, the absorption – and relax! Best experienced with headphones.
