WHAT HAPPENED AT THE ICA?

Thanks to the efforts of ICA paper conservator Cher Schneider,  the first map of Licking County, is once again able to be displayed.  This map was a gift to the Licking County Library in 2006 from a local historian, William I. Davis.  When it arrived at the lab the map was crumbling into tiny pieces and needed extensive work.  Efforts to stabilize the valuable document took nearly nine months.
