Topic: Digitization and preservation: collaborative projects

Please join us for an informal discussion group session to explore
integrating preservation and digitization projects.  How can we best
protect rare and valuable material from damage during the scanning
process?  Should we recommend conservation before or after scanning?
Is it prudent to include preservation expenses in grant proposals
for digitization projects? We welcome your suggestions, questions,
and concerns.

Discussion facilitators:

    Tom Clareson, Imaging and Preservation Services Manager, Amigos
    Library Services, Inc, will discuss preservation issues in
    digital projects in archives and libraries in the Southwestern
    United States.

    Robin Dale, Program Officer, Research Library Group, will share
    theory and practice information for preservation and
    digitization gathered from recent conferences in the United

    Steve Dalton, Director of Field Services, Northeast Document
    Conservation Center, will provide an overview of the NEDCC
    publication, Handbook for Digital Projects: A Management Tool
    for Preservation and Access.

    Mary Wootton, Rare Book Conservator, Library of Congress will
    discuss policies and procedures for the preservation of primary
    source material developed by the Conservation Division at the
    Library of Congress for the Digital Library Project.
