Preservation event at Indiana

From: Lorraine Olley <olley>
Date: Tuesday, February 18, 1992
"Preservation Awareness" is the theme of a week-long series of events,
focusing on the preservation of library materials, scheduled during
National Library Week (April 5-11) at the Indiana University
Libraries-Bloomington.  The keynote speaker is George Cunha, the founder
and director emeritus of the Northeast Document Conservation Center in
Andover, Massachusetts.  At 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, April 8, Mr. Cunha
will discuss new trends and challenges in the preservation of research
library materials in a talk entitled "Library and Archives Conservation:
1990s and Beyond."  Mr. Cunha is an internationally renowned expert on
preservation issues, and recently was called in as a consultant in the
aftermath of the Academy of Sciences Library fire in St. Petersburg
(formerly Leningrad).

Other activities scheduled for the week include a preservation education
"film festival," exhibits in the Main Library lobby, book treatment
demonstrations, tours of the Libraries' Preservation Department, and a
book "diagnostic" clinic.  Bookmarks, book bags, posters, and fact
sheets will be available to further spread the preservation message.
