Workshops on preservation management

From: Lori Foley <lfoley>
Date: Wednesday, June 26, 2002
Managing Preservation:
A Series of Five Coordinated Workshops
Presented by the Northeast Document Conservation Center

If your institution has had a preservation planning survey and is
ready to take the next step, if it has not yet developed a
systematic preservation program, if it needs to make the current
program more effective, or if you feel the need for additional
preservation education, NEDCC has designed a program just for you.
The cycle of workshops is designed to provide systematic
preservation training to staff of small to mid-sized museums,
historical organizations, archives, libraries, and records
repositories. As a series, the workshops will provide the
information needed to design, implement, and maintain an effective
preservation program for documents, books, photographs, and other
paper-based materials.

The program is designed for the full-time professional with
part-time preservation responsibilities. Institutions may be small
to mid-sized archives, museums, historical organizations, records
repositories, or public, academic, or special libraries with
paper-based materials of enduring value for research. The series is
not designed to address the specific needs of general circulating
collections or large academic research libraries.
