NEDCC Preservation Manual--Spanish translation

From: Gay Tracy <tracy>
Date: Tuesday, July 6, 1999
The Spanish translation of NEDCC's Preservation Manual is available
at <URL:>. The translation was made by the
National Library of Venezuela, with support from the Council on
Library and Information Resources (CLIR).

The manual provides basic, practical information needed to enable
non-conservators to plan and implement sound collections care
programs. The manual is one of few preservation publications written
in layman's language that is an authoritative reference source for
up-to-date scientific research.  The major sections are: planning
and prioritizing, the environment, emergency management, storage and
handling, reformatting, and conservation procedures.  Professional
illustrations make the "how-to" leaflets easy to understand and use.
The translation makes a core collection of preservation literature
available for the first time in Spanish

The original manual in English was funded by The Institute of Museum
and Library Services (IMLS), a Federal agency that fosters
innovation, leadership and a lifetime of learning.  In addition,
NEDCC receives major funding from the National Endowment for the
Humanities for its field service program, which is the educational
and consulting arm of the Center.
