Is Magnetism Here to Stay?  The Management of Magnetic Media
Collections. Magnetic media (audio and video recordings, computer
discs and tapes) is increasingly becoming a significant portion of
library and archival collections. However, many managers and
curators of such collections are unaware of the problems of these
media as formats for long-term preservation. The life expectancy of
individual magnetic media recordings may be measured in decades,
rather than centuries.  Whether dealing with circulating or archival
collections, understanding the nature of the various magnetic media,
their inherent vice, the factors that cause their deterioration,
their equipment, and the storage and handling of the recordings
themselves are the keys to maximizing their useful life.

Through lecture, discussion, and some hands-on work, this one-day
workshop will provide collection management strategies to aid in
protecting and preserving these valuable resources. Instructor for
this workshop is Alan Lewis, Audiovisual Preservation Expert at the
National Archives, Special Media Archives Division.

The session is scheduled for Thursday, November 19 from 8:30am to
3:30pm at William Breman Jewish Heritage Museum, Atlanta, GA.

Cost: $95 SOLINET Members ($85 early bird, $120 late registration)
$135 Non-SOLINET & FEDLINK ($125 early bird, $160 late registration)
Any institution in Georgia qualifies for the member rate.
