Conference on preservation strategies

From: Dorothy Wright <dww>
Date: Thursday, February 18, 1993
The Collection Management and Development Section and the Preservation
of Library Materials Section of ALA/ALCTS is sponsoring a two day
regional institute on preservation strategies for collection management.
This institute will provide an overview of major issues in planning,
developing, implementing and funding preservation activities for
libraries where there is no formal preservation program in place.  It is
designed to equip those involved in collection management with the
needed skills and perspectives to set preservation priorities, work with
available resources and establish plans that are appropriate to the
collections within their institutions.

Papers, panel discussions, issue sessions and small break-out sessions
will be among the variety of instructional techniques employed.
Break-out sessions will provide practical advice and handouts on
preservation issues for specific material formats and on planning and
implementing preservation activities.  Speakers include Sophia Jordan
(Notre Dame), Dwight Burlingame (Indiana University), Marta O'Niell
(Indiana Commission on Public Records), Rebecca Stuhr-Rommerin
(University of Iowa), Lorraine Olley (Indiana University), Martha Hanson
(Syracuse University), Jennifer Hehman (IUPUI), Miriam Kahn (MBK
Consulting), Carla Montori (University of Michigan), Kathryn De Graff
(DePaul University), Dina Schoomaker (Oberlin College) and Don
Etherington (ICI).

The institute will be held May 3-4, 1993 at the University of Notre
Dame, Center for Continuing Education, Notre Dame, Indiana. Hotel
accommodations are reserved at the Morris Inn and the Jamison Inn
adjacent to the conference center.
