Conference on digitization, microfilming, and preservation

From: Karen Motylewski <nedcc>
Date: Friday, January 6, 1995
The Northeast Document Conservation Center (NEDCC) will present a
one-day conference on digital imaging as a preservation strategy on
Thursday, April 13, 1995.  The program will be held at the John F.
Kennedy Library and Museum, Columbia Point, Boston, Massachusetts 02125.

The conference will look at the digitization projects conducted at
Cornell and Yale Universities and analyze the implications of their
findings for archives, libraries, and historical institutions.

The program will address issues surrounding the conversion of scanned
images to microfilm and vice-versa.  Managers of the two projects will
present a thorough cost/benefit analysis.  Other speakers will look at
the implications of digitization in the context of broader policy and
funding issues.

The faculty will include Anne Kenney, Associate Director, Department of
Preservation and Conservation, Olin Library, Cornell University; Paul
Conway, Head, Preservation Department, Sterling Memorial Library, Yale
University; Richard Ekman, Secretary, The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation;
Deanna B. Marcum, President, Council on Library Resources; George Farr,
Director, National Endowment for the Humanities, and others.

The fee for the digitization conference, including lunch, is $70.
Registration materials will be mailed in March.  To request
