Visiting Preservation Resources during ALA midwinter meeting

From: Meg Bellinger <bellingm>
Date: Tuesday, October 6, 1998
Given Preservation Resources' proximity to Philadelphia, I would
like to take the opportunity of ALA Midwinter to invite you to tour
our facility on Friday, January 29th, to see how we do preservation
microfilming and digital conversion of film, and to meet the staff.
The tour will encompass the full range of our facility and services
and will include:

    *   our camera studio which includes the thirteen Hermann &
        Kraemer cameras and the Log E Robertson full frame fiche

    *   an overview of how preservation-quality microfilms are
        created, including high contrast, continuous tone and color

    *   the darkroom, processing and quality control units and an
        overview of how we manufacture and apply polysulfide
        solution ,

    *   the 26,200 cubic feet microfilm Vault,

    *   the digital imaging studio and a brief overview of the
        scanning process.

You'll see in action a fully implemented, high-production
reformatting operation that is currently producing 8.4 million
microfilm frames and 1.3 million images per year.
