In presenting this program, for the first time The Los Angeles
Preservation Network (LAPNet) addresses the buildings in which
library materials are housed. The speakers will discuss such topics
as the structure of the building, HVAC (heating, ventilation and air
conditioning) systems, lighting,  shelving, maintenance, talking the
"Facilities Language", interim measures, the effect of the building
on materials housed in it, and librarians as part of the facilities
team. With our speakers as guides, participants will have the
opportunity to walk through the Occidental College Library with an
eye towards evaluating the building as a facility for housing
library collections. Participants will then have an opportunity to
discuss their findings with the speakers and to ask questions.

This program will present library preservation issues to consider in
evaluating existing library buildings that participants can apply at
their own institutions.

About our speakers:

David H. Richards and James Weiner, from the firm of Fields
Deveraux, have worked on several library renovation projects, and
are currently involved in the Doheny Memorial Library earthquake
retrofitting and preservation project at USC. Susan E. Parker has
been directly involved in responding to mold infestation in the CSU
Northridge Library following the Northridge earthquake. Susan Rogers
has years of experience as a paper conservator and was recently
appointed as Chief Preservation Officer at the Huntington Library.
