Core Collection in Preservation

From: Erich Kesse <erikess>
Date: Friday, May 7, 1993
Updated SOLINET/ALA Publication Includes ListServs, Index.

The second edition of A CORE COLLECTION IN PRESERVATION has recently
been published by SOLINET and the Association for Library Collections
and Technical Services (ALCTS), a division of the American Library
Association. The edition was prepared by Don K. Thompson and Joan ten
Hoor, under the aegis of the PLMS (Preservation of Library Materials
Section), Education Committee.

The 48-page book includes 115 annotated citations for books, reports,
and periodicals covering the entire spectrum of library and archival
preservation. It is designed to provide a working resource for
administrators, librarians, archivists, curators, and conservators and
includes publications which, after critical review by members of the
PLMS Education Committee, have been judged accurate, useful and
especially significant.

In addition to many new titles, the second edition features citations to
electronic information sources (listservs) and a comprehensive index.

Joint publication by SOLINET and ALCTS drew on the former's editorial
and publishing capabilities and the latter's access to the vast
technical expertise within the PLMS membership.  This cooperative
approach helped offset five years of rising production costs and
inflation: the new edition costs the same as the first.

Copies of A CORE COLLECTION IN PRESERVATION are available for $5.00
each. Thanks to funding support from the National Endowment for the
Humanities, Division of Preservation and Access, all SOLINET members are
entitled to one free copy upon request.  Orders must be prepaid (checks
