Intensive three-day workshop in Ann Arbor, MI,
co-hosted by Bentley Historical Library and UMI

March 18, 1992 -- The Research Libraries Group (RLG) will sponsor a
three-day preservation microfilming workshop for library staff May 13
through 15.  Entitled "Quality Assurance in Preservation Microfilming:
Implementing the RLG Guidelines," the workshop will be co-hosted by the
University of Michigan's Bentley Historical Library and UMI (University
Microfilms International).  The event will take place at the Bentley
Library and at UMI's Preservation Division Facilities, both in Ann
Arbor, Michigan.

The workshop will offer the preservation specialist practical, hands-on
instruction in technical aspects of preservation microfilming.
Instructors Nancy Elkington, RLG Preservation Program Officer, and Bob
Mottice, UMI Director of Quality Control, will cover guidelines for
preparation, target creation, microfilming, and inspection of three
generations of preservation microfilm.  The newly published RLG
PRESERVATION MICROFILMING HANDBOOK will be the text for the workshop.

Participants will learn how to calibrate and use microfilm inspection
equipment, assess quality attributes of preservation microfilm, and
troubleshoot and negotiate quality problems.  In addition, the
instructors will suggest ways to organize quality assurance activities
in-house to achieve the best results.

Workshop tuition is $750 and includes a copy of the new RLG handbook and
instructional materials developed solely for this course.  Attendance
will be limited to the first 25 registrants.

For more information about attending the workshop, please contact Nancy
Elkington at the Research Libraries Group, phone (415) 691-2375, email
