Subject: Preservation Education Program at ALA

Preservation Education Program at ALA

From: Julie Page <julie_page>
Date: Wednesday, April 20, 1994
At the ALA 1994 Annual Conference in Miami, the Preservation of Library
Materials Section (PLMS) and the Library Instruction Roundtable (LIRT)
are cosponsoring a program "Selling Preservation: What to Say to the
Customer."  The program will be on Monday, June 27 from 2-5:00 pm.  The
program will offer practical solutions for educating library customers
in the proper care and handling of library materials in public, school,
academic, and special libraries.

As part of the program there will be an exhibit area with samples of
materials used to promote preservation awareness to library users.
These materials will include posters, bookmarks, handouts, and teaching
tools.  The program committee would appreciate contributions of
preservation education materials that libraries have developed or
purchased to include in the program exhibit area.  Purchasing and cost
information for displayed items will be included on a program
information sheet.  Materials not for sale will be noted as well.  Your
sample materials do not need to be fancy or professionally designed.
Effective communication of preservation issues and a cross-section of
ideas from all types of libraries is desired.

Based on the program an ALA publication is being planned. Included in
the publication will be samples of the exhibit materials and information
about availability and purchase.  A copy of all exhibit materials will
be sent to LOEX in Ypsilanti, Michigan which serves as a clearinghouse
for library instruction materials.

In order to ensure that correct information is included about materials
you contribute, please fill out the form attached below, and return it
by MAY 15 with TWO copies of your materials to:

    Jill Rawnsley, Program Exhibit Coordinator
    Conservation Center for Art and Historic Artifacts
    264 South 23rd Street
    Philadelphia, PA  19103

Contribution of your educational materials will serve to enrich the
program and publication.  The committee appreciates the extra effort you
have taken and hopes that you or one of your staff will be able to
attend what promises to be an exciting and informative ALA program.  If
you have any questions please contact Jill Rawnsley (215-545-0613, Fax:
