Program on the future of preservation

From: Christopher Coleman <cdgc>

"Double Fold, Double Take, Double Talk"
A program on the future of preservation
UCLA Faculty Center
Tuesday May 18, 2004

The Los Angeles Preservation Network (LAPNet) and UCLA Library
invite you to join your colleagues for an afternoon of speculation
on preservation in our increasingly digitized environment.

The program brings together a faculty researcher, a reference
librarian, a rare books librarian, a computer resource specialist, a
preservation specialist, and UCLA's new University Librarian to
describe and discuss projects, look at some of the criticisms
leveled against library preservation, reflect on changes in
continuing education for preservation, and speculate on what might
happen to traditional preservation in the face of digitization for
ease of access.

The content of this program will interest scholars, librarians,
preservationists, and administrators.

Speakers and Presentations:

    "The Critics: Baker and half-baked"
    Katharine Donahue, UCLA

    "Moving targets--microfilm to digitizing"
    Gretchen Karl, Getty Center

    "Accessing the Anna Akhmatova notebooks"
    David MacFadyen, UCLA Slavic Department

    "Now you see it, now you don't: online campaign materials--the
     most ephemeral of the ephemera"
    Gabriella Gray and Scott Martin, UCLA

    "Can we preserve everything?"
    Gary Strong, UCLA Library Director

The formal program and discussion will be followed by a reception at
6pm and optional dinner at 6:30.
