"Have You Got The Blues?"
CCAHA Continues Architectural Records Workshops in 1998

The Conservation Center for Art and Historic Artifacts (CCAHA)
announces two day-long architectural records workshops, "Have You
Got the Blues? Architectural Records: Their Identification,
Management, Storage, and Treatment."  The workshops are partially
funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities.  The workshops
will be co-sponsored by the site institutions

Workshop #1

Library and Information Science, Austin, Texas
Presented in cooperation with AMIGOS Bibliographic Council, Inc.

Workshop #2

The Historic New Orleans Collection, New Orleans, Louisiana
Presented in cooperation with the Southeastern Library Network

Audience: The workshops are intended for architectural historians
and architects, as well as library, archives, and museum
professionals who have architectural records, drawings or other
oversize paper-based materials in their care or collections.

The speakers will address the problems of caring for the diverse
materials of an architectural records collection.  The workshops
will help participants identify different original media and
reproductive processes; consider options for management and
organization of architectural records; recognize storage problems
and options; and discuss basic collections care methods and remedial
treatments that can be safely accomplished in-house.

Speakers: Lois Olcott Price, Conservator of Library Collections,
Winterthur Library. Joan Irving, Conservator, Conservation Center
for Art and Historic Artifacts (CCAHA)

Cost: $80.00 - Members of CCAHA, AMIGOS or SOLINET

The workshop agenda will also include a presentation by a speaker
from the host site, who will address management issues related to
their unique collections.

The workshops will be held from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Enrollment
will be limited to 30 participants.  The registration fee includes
supplementary materials and lunch. For further information and a
