This  5 day conference is one of the official events of "Photo 98",
the  Arts Council Year of Photography and the Electronic Image.  It
will  be the first major international  conference about  the
collective care of these associated  materials  to take  place in
this country. It is intended to bring  together all   those  with
responsibility  for  the  welfare  of  such collections. A large
number of papers have been selected  both from this country and
abroad, all of a very high standard. The conference is organised by
the Institute of Paper Conservation (IPC)  with support from the
Society of Archivists. The  venue is also the home of the Yorkshire
Film Archive.

The aims of the conference are:

    1.  To provide  a  platform  for  British   research,
        institutions and societies

     2. To outline the main areas of research world-wide and likely
        developments for the future (including the  role of digital
        technology  in   the   care   of   these collections).

    3.  To provide a clear view of what is accepted practice.

The aims of the conference are supported by major national
