University of Kentucky, Lexington, KY
Monday-Tuesday, September 16-17, 2002
8:30am - 5:00 pm
Optional Q&A session until 6:30 on Monday.

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 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 $195 SOLINET members ($185 early bird, $220 late
registration), $235 Non-SOLINET members ($225 early bird, $260 late
registration. Price includes lunch on both days.  Any institution
within Kentucky qualifies for the member rate.
