Book Conservators to address ALA

From: Randy Silverman <rsilverm>
Date: Monday, May 22, 1995
A two-hour program entitled "Expanding the Role of Book Repair in
Collection-wide Preservation" will be presented at the annual
American Library Association conference in Chicago.  This will be
the first event ever co-sponsored by the American Institute for
Conservation and the ALCTS section of the American Library
Association, and will provide conservators an opportunity to address
current thinking on the role of book repair in maintaining
collection-wide condition and value.

The five slide presentations will cover:  an overview of collection-
wide approaches to book repair; strategies for determining
appropriate treatment approaches for books in special collections;
selection criteria for identifying and preserving significant
material in circulating collections; non-damaging book repair
options for retaining original bindings in circulating collections;
and basic book repair for circulating collections.

The program is geared toward library administrators, collection
development officers, rare book librarians, preservation librarians,
book repair and bindery preparation technicians, and library school
faculty.  The five presenters for this program are:  Paul Banks
(Senior Lecturer, Preservation and Conservation Studies, University
of Texas at Austin), Nancy Schrock (Conservator in Private
Practice), Nicholas Pickwoad (Chief Conservator, Harvard University
Library), Eleanore Stewart (Head of Conservation Treatment, Stanford
University), and Randy Silverman (Preservation Librarian, University
of Utah).  "Expanding the Role of Book Repair in Collection-wide
Preservation" will be presented Saturday, June 24th, from 2-4 pm in
the McCormick Place Complex, East Building, Room E352.
