Three prizes--for $3,000, $1,500, and $750 worth of ICI Conservation
services--will be presented in the "Prize For A Plan 1995" contest.
Libraries, museums, archives, and other institutions with valuable
materials are invited to submit their plans by Nov. 15, 1995 for
using ICI Conservation services to restore, repair, deacidify, or
create enclosures for collection materials. "Planning is the key to
successful preservation programs," said Don Etherington, President,
ICI Conservation Division.  "There is work to be done in virtually
every collection but in most cases it has be to done in stages.  The
results of the planning process in "Prize For A Plan 1995" will be
complimentary services for three institutions and could perhaps be
used as the basis for future grant applications."
