Resource manual on collection conservation treatment

From: Lynn Jones <ljones>
Date: Tuesday, December 14, 1993
Information regarding Collection Conservation Treatment: a resource
manual for program development and conservation technician training.

This 450+ page looseleaf compilation of general collection treatment
instructions and supporting management information was prepared as part
of the April 1992 Training the Trainers conference at Berkeley,
sponsored by the National Endowment for the Humanities.  Collection
Conservation Treatment includes treatment instructions from some of the
country's major conservation programs, as well as information on
laboratory management and treatment decision making.  Multiple versions
of similar treatments are documented, often illustrated, demonstrating
the kinds of variations possible under different circumstances.

The Training the Trainers conference gathered 42 of the nation's
foremost collection conservators and preservation administrators
together to plan for regional training of collection conservation
technicians.  This planning is well underway in several regions; where
funding is available training has begun, and where funding is being
sought training may begin as soon as the summer of 1994.   These
regional training programs will be using Collection Conservation
Treatment as their basic text.

The manual is available for $25.00 from the Publications Department,
Office of Management Services, Association of Research Libraries, 21
Dupont Circle, Washington, DC 20036.  Phone orders accepted at
