Conference on cellulose acetate microfilm

From: Deborah Novotny <deborah.novotny>
Date: Wednesday, July 28, 2004
Cellulose Acetate Microfilm Forum
Organised by The British Library and
LIBER  Preservation Division
To be held at The British Library, London,  UK
May 23-24, 2005

For the past two years the British Library, the Library of Congress
and others have been leading on the issue of  cellulose acetate
microfilm in collections, assessing the nature and extent of the
problem and trying to determine appropriate preservation responses
to it.  Two international roundtables  of producers and holders of
microfilm have taken place  on the subject of cellulose acetate
microfilm and this forum aims to disseminate information to the
wider library  and archive world and to engender further discussion
amongst participants.  Specifically, the British Library will
address the nature of its own  cellulose acetate microfilm legacy,
demonstrating the way in which its Collection Care department is
responding. This conference is aimed at everyone who has a
professional interest in preservation microfilm, particularly those
involved in managing ageing  and possibly vulnerable collections.

The British Library is hosting a new web site dedicated to
cellulose acetate microfilm, scheduled to go live in October 2004.
Agenda, registration information and forms can be accessed through
the site.
