Preservation microfilming conference proceedings

From: Katy Bellingham <k.bellingham>
Date: Tuesday, May 31, 1994
The National Preservation Office at the National Library of Australia
recently conducted its first national conference. The title of the
conference of the conference was 'preservation microfilming: does it
have a future?'. The resounding reply was "yes!'.

The program of the conference included keynote addresses by Anne Kenney
of Cornell University Library and Ralph Manning of the National Library
of Canada. The main topics addressed included approaches to microfilming
in different types of organisations, new technologies, key issues and

The National Preservation Office has begun work on producing the
conference proceedings and resolutions. They should be published later
this year and will be available for a reasonable cost.

Soon it will be necessary to determine the size of the print run, and we
are now calling for expressions of interest in purchasing a copy of this
publication when it becomes available.

If you are interested please forward me an e-mail message including your
*full* postal details.

Please forward this message to any other of your colleagues that you think
might be interested.
