Workshop on disasters

The Preservation Directorate of the Library of Congress announces a
series of workshops on "Salvage of Library Collections."

In an effort to help victims of past and future natural disasters,
such as the recent series of hurricanes, the Preservation
Directorate of the Library of Congress will be holding a free
two-day workshop on salvage of library collections (limit: 10
people).  This two-day workshop will be held on November 17 and 18,
2005. The workshop will be at the Library of Congress, and is
offered on the occasion of the first meeting of members of the
International Federation of Library Associations Preservation and
Conservation North American Network
(<URL:> )

To continue to support this effort, the Preservation Directorate
will subsequently hold a series of similar one-day workshops monthly
throughout 2006.  These one-day workshops are also free of charge
and may be open to a limited number of participants, with preference
given to librarians from regions affected by the hurricanes.

Pending funding, some courses may be held in the affected regions,
in partnership with Solinet, IFLA's Preservation and Conservation
North American Network, and other sponsors.  For more information,
please contact:
