Schott reading lamps

From: John Scott <jscott>
Date: Monday, January 2, 1995
Re: late November query: For those preferring to spend less for "cold
light" illuminators, I recommend:

    Cuda Products1 904 737 7611 USA
    6000 Powers Avenue
    Jacksonville, FL 32217-2279

Cuda supplies light sources, fiberoptic light pipes, and associated
useful accessories for many specialized applications.  I'm using their
low-end illuminator model I-150 with a short light pipe for microscopy.
The cost was around $200 three years ago.

Redefining Disasters: A Decade of Counter-Disaster Planning

The State Library of New South Wales announces a three-day conference to
be held at the State Library of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia, on
20-22 September 1995.

There is nothing that can put a library out of business faster than a
fire, flood or earthquake. Disasters in libraries destroy collections,
cost money and reduce morale. No institution is immune but some are
managing the threat. Planning for potential disasters can make the
difference between temporary loss of service and catastrophe.

It is sixteen years since the publication of Peter Waters' influential
book, `Procedures for Salvage of Water-Damaged Library Materials'. Six
years later Sally Buchanan visited Australia and catalysed the
development of counter-disaster plans for the Australian environment.
Many of those who attended the workshop have since written
counter-disaster plans and are now revising them.

The conference will look at what has happened in the past sixteen years.
National and international speakers will discuss how threats have
changed and been quantified, how plans have worked or failed, the impact
of disasters on new technologies and directions for future action.

Included will be the latest developments in recovery techniques, fire
detection and suppression systems and risk management.

Keep September 1995 free to visit Sydney; it will be disastrous if you
miss it. For further information contact:
