C2C Logo Danger can lurk on any museum or library shelf—firearms, antique medicine bottles, arsenic in natural science specimens, dangerous mold, and more.

AASLH’s 2009 Technical Leaflet, “The Handling and Exhibition of Potentially Hazardous Artifacts in Museum Collections” addresses these challenges and can help put your mind at ease or get you started on correcting a possible problem.
