Social Media


Social media can be a powerful tool to reach the public and spread awareness and educate about preventive conservation. Melissa is currently a photographer and social media manager for the University of Delaware Art Conservation Programs’ Instagram and Facebook accounts. If you are a current student, an alumna, or see some images or announcements that would be good for sharing, feel free to contact her.
