AIC update session

From: Maria Fredericks <bm.wic>
Date: Tuesday, September 11, 1990
To those on the DistList who are AIC Book and Paper Group members (and
others who have 2 cents to put in):

The 1991 AIC Conference will feature an update session from the Book and
Paper Group.  One section of the update will address "Philosophical
Considerations in Reformatting for Libraries and Archives".  As the co-
ordinator of this section, it is my job to get input from the membership
and then distill it all down into a 15-minute presentation.

There have certainly been developments and changes in attitude toward
reformatting during the last four years.  At both the AIC and ALA
conferences there have been opinions expressed that the brittle book
problem has been overstated and that too much money is being put into
microfilming programs, at the expense of other preservation options.
Preservation photocopy has also become more available.

Please send me your thoughts on these and related issues, so that I can
include them in the update.  If you would rather talk on the phone, you
can reach me at (302)888-4633 -- or contact me via email and I can call
you, if that's better.

Thanks for your help in putting this together.
Maria Fredericks
