Workshop on preservation microfilming

Preservation Microfilming: The Silver Standard
at the University of Georgia,
Athens GA
Wednesday-Thursday, September 26-27, 2001
9:00 am - 4:00 pm

    Libraries continue to be challenged by crumbling 19th century
    book and paper collections.  Digital technology is the choice to
    enhance access, but the Council on Library Information Resources
    considers preservation microfilming "the gold standard" for
    preserving the intellectual content of brittle, endangered
    materials.  The two-day session will cover planning projects,
    selection and preparation for filming, microfilm technology and
    equipment, standards and quality control including demonstration
    and hand-on activities.

    This workshop is designed for staff in all types of libraries
    and archives who manage or work with microfilming projects,
    preservation administrators, and collection managers.

    Instructors are Steve Eberhardt, SOLINET Preservation Microfilm
    Services Coordinator; Bob Mottice, Director of Technology and
    Quality Control, Bell & Howell and private consultant; and Becky
    Ryder, Preservation Librarian, William P Young Library,
    University of Kentucky at Lexington.

    Cost is $155 governing members ($145 early bird, $180 late
    registration), $165 associate members ($155 early bird, $190
    late registration), $195 affiliate (non-members) ($185 early
    bird, $220 late registration). Any institution within Georgia
    qualifies for the member rate.
