Conference on digital printing

From: Anthony Smith <a.w.smith>
Date: Tuesday, September 12, 2000
Preservation and Conservation Issues Related to Digital Printing
October 26-27, 2000
Institute of Physics
76 Portland Place, London W1B 1NT, UK

Fast evolving technology has led to digitally printed material
entering archives, libraries and fine art galleries in increasing
amounts. Consequently, there is a growing interest among curators,
archivists, librarians and conservators in long-term stability and
preservation of these type of materials.

This is a two-day conference, organised jointly by the Institute of
Physics and The London Institute.
