  On November 18, 1992, the AMIGOS Preservation Service will conduct a
  1-day full-day preconference, "Preservation Environments for Libraries
  and Archives," prior to The AMIGOS Fall 1992 Conference, November
  19-20, at the Harvey Hotel-Addison in Dallas, Texas.  The
  preconference features national preservation experts Paul Banks and
  William Lull who will address environmental control measures for
  libraries, archives, and cultural institutions.

  Banks is Senior Lecturer, Preservation and Conservation Education
  Programs for Libraries and Archives, Graduate School of Library and
  Information Science, University of Texas at Austin; Lull is Principal,
  Garrison/Lull, a library and museum consulting firm located in
  Princeton Junction, New Jersey.  Both speakers are prolific authors and
  presenters on the subject of environmental control in cultural
  institutions; together they co-authored the standard publication in
  the field, Conservation Environment Guidelines for Libraries and
  Archives in New York State.

  The workshop will acquaint participants with the aspects of the
  physical environment which can cause deterioration in library
  collections -- temperature, humidity, light and pollution.  Goals and
  features of a stable environment will be highlighted.  Additionally,
  speakers will discuss interim and low-cost improvements in a library's
  environment; measurements and equipment for monitoring the physical
  environment; renovation, design and construction of library and
  archival facilities; and working with facilities and management staff.
  Both library and physical plant staff are encouraged to attend the

  AMIGOS Preservation Service presentations during The AMIGOS Fall 1992
  conference are:  a report on the results of the AMIGOS Preservation
  Service Needs Assessment Survey, conducted in 1991-92 to document the
  preservation activities and needs of libraries and archives in the
  southwestern United States; and "Your Library's Role in the National
  Preservation Movement," which will address the individual and
  cooperative contributions an institution can make to nationwide
  preservation activities.  For more information or registration forms
