Preservation Planning for Archives
South Carolina State Library, Columbia, SC
Thursday, February 21, 2002
from 9am-4pm

    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 Palmetto Archives, Libraries
    and Museums Council on Preservation (PALMCOP).

    The instructor is Pamela Hackbart-Dean, the Archivist of the
    Southern Labor Archives at Georgia State University.

    Cost:  $95 SOLINET  members, all categories ($85 early bird,
    $120 late registration); $135 non-members ($125 early bird, $160
    late registration). Any institution in South Carolina qualifies
    for the member rate.
