The Northeast Documents Conservation Center (NEDCC) is presenting a
workshop on Preservation Microfilming, Oct.14-16, in Lincoln, Nebraska.
The workshop is co-sponsored by the Nebraska Documents Preservation
Advisory Council.  Funding in part is provided by The Pew Charitable
Trusts, the National Endowment for the Humanities and the H.W. Wilson

The purpose of the workshop is to facilitate the national preservation
effort to microfilm brittle books and other research materials.  The
program is designed to train personnel in libraries or other agencies to
plan, implement and manage filming projects.
Participants will learn skills for planning micro- film projects,
including developing specifications and writing contracts with vendors.
They will obtain hands-on experience in operating a camera, inspecting
completed film, and will be given an overview of the national standards
and specifications for microfilm.

Registration is $150 ($100 for those who already own PRESERVATION
MICROFILMING edited by Nancy Gwinn), and attendance is limited to 15.
Deadline for registering is 7 October.
