The ALA/ALCTS/Preservation and Reformatting Section's Education
Committee is pleased to present the following program at the ALA
annual meeting in Chicago:

"Managing Preservation Technologies for the New Century"
Marriott Downtown-Chicago BR E
Sunday, July 9, 2000, 2-4 p.m.

In 2020 will you read a book inscribed by an ion beam on an iridium
pin (HD-ROM)?  Digital imaging currently offers tremendous
opportunities for providing access to information, and eventually
standards will emerge for using digitization as a preservation
format.  Other technologic advancements are likely to emerge in the
21st century that will impact library services. What will be the
role of traditional library materials in the future, and how will
these affect preservation programs?  Decisions we make today lay the
groundwork for tomorrow's challenges.  Three experts discuss past,
present, and future realities and implications of various new and
traditional preservation technologies.  Specific applications and
projects will provide librarians, managers, and anyone interested in
digitization and its effects on collections with valuable guidelines
for making decisions that will benefit their institutions.  Kenneth
Lavender, Curator, Rare Book and Texana Collection, University of
North Texas will moderate the program.
