Dear all,

does anybody have experience about how to deal with historical collections when you have a serie of (often different) fossils glued in rows on thin glass plates (generally 6-12 of them) with small lables on them.

I would appreciate if you could share your experience with it regarding
- how to deal with the cleaning (did you unglue them first?)?
- did you keep them all on the glass plates or removed those isolating the single fossils and their small labels
- how did you permit to keep the historical value but permitted also a modern revision and catalogisation of the fossils

Thanks in advance for your support,
Evelyn Kustatscher
