        Minolta face-up copier (tentative-Gary Frost)

        Special Collections Materials in the General

        Stacks:  appropriate conservation treatments (note:  this
        will be a follow-up discussion based upon the RBMS

        Suggested topics for next meeting, Feb. 1997 / Washington,

        NISO Exhibition guidelines (pending)--impact upon
        conservation treatment decisions?

        an in-house conservation lab.

        Preservation condition survey forms for rare books.

        Monetary appraisal of holdings and how that figure
        "translates" into insurance coverage for the repository.
