PARS Discussion Group: Fundraising and Support for Preservation

It has always been a challenge to convince policy makers and
resource allocators, whether at the institutional, state or federal
level, of the importance preserving library and archival materials.
However, those responsible for the preservation of collections may
face new challenges in the current political climate.

Recognizing this, "Fundraising and Support for Preservation" will be
the topic of the Preservation and Reformatting Section Discussion
Group at ALA Midwinter in San Antonio.  John Dean, Director,
Department of Preservation and Conservation, Cornell University, and
Ann Russell, Director, Northeast Document Conservation Center will
discuss, separately, their fundraising successes and advocacy
experiences.  The session will be moderated by Ann Olszewski,
Preservation Librarian, Cleveland Public Library, and Steve Smith,
Preservation Service Field Services Officer, AMIGOS Bibliographic
Council.  There will, of course, be plenty of opportunity for
discussion from audience members.

The session begins at 8:00 am on Sunday, January 21 in the Hyatt
Medina Room, and will be followed by an informal reporting session.
We invite all regional preservation and conservation centers,
granting agencies, and other groups and organizations concerned with
library preservation to report on their current activities and
future plans.
