Preservation Planning for Archives

    The basic elements of archival arrangement and description-
    surveying, selecting, and holdings maintenance- are essential
    components of archives preservation management. These activities
    exemplify a practical approach to preserving materials housed in
    repositories, regardless of size or scope. The emphasis is on
    stabilizing archival records in order to extend their life by:
    determining the preservation needs of the institution,
    developing a systematic methodology for preservation priorities,
    and improving housing and storage materials and practices.

    This workshop is cosponsored by the Society of Georgia
    Archivists and will be held on Wednesday, May 17 at the Georgia
    Music Hall of Fame, Macon, GA from 9am-4pm.

Introduction to Digital Imaging Technologies for Libraries and

    The increase in digital imaging projects for library and
    archival collections raises many issues related to selection,
    resource allocation and long-term access (preservation). These
    issues must be thoroughly examined before an institution
    undertakes a digital imaging project.

    Issues addressed in this one-day workshop include the following:
    What collections or resources are appropriate for digital
    conversion? How will the digital files be maintained? Who is
    responsible for ensuring future access to this digital
    information? Is future access necessary? Institutions
    considering imaging project must consider these questions. This
    workshop is designed to provide participants with the tools
    needed to make informed decision about undertaking scanning
