Preservation microfilming workshop

From: Gay Tracy <nedcc>
Date: Thursday, March 21, 1996
The Northeast Document Conservation Center (NEDCC) will
present four workshops on preservation microfilming.  The first
workshop will be May 13-15, 1996 in Sacramento, California at the
California State Library; the second from June 10-12, 1996 at the
New Mexico University Library, Las Cruces, New Mexico; the third
September 9-11, 1996 at the University of North Carolina, Chapel
Hill, NC; and the fourth from October 7-9, 1996 at the American
Bible Society in New York City.

The program is designed to train project administrators in
libraries, archives, and other research institutions to plan, implement,
and manage filming projects.  It will also present information on
digital technologies and their role in hybrid systems.  In addition,
participants will learn skills for planning preservation microfilming
projects; for selecting materials for filming; for developing
specifications; and for writing contracts with vendors.

Susan Wrynn, Director of Reprographic Services at NEDCC,
will conduct the workshops.  Other faculty will join her for the digital
technologies sessions.

The cost to participants is $210.  The price of the workshop
includes the cost of Preservation Microfilming: A Guide for Librarians
and Archivists, 2nd ed., edited by Lisa Fox, Preservation Consultant.
If a participant does not wish to order the book, the cost of the
workshop is $150.

Fliers for each workshop will be available about six weeks
before the workshop.  Fliers include all registration materials.  For
