8:30 am - 5:30 pm (Thursday)
8:30 - noon (Friday)

Do deteriorated and crumbling 19th century book and paper
collections comprise a large part of your library or archive? Which
reformatting technique will best preserve this material for the long
term? Digital technology is the choice to enhance access, but the
Council on Library and Information Resources considers preservation
microfilming "the gold standard" for preserving the intellectual
content of brittle, endangered materials.

This workshop is designed to train project administrators in
institutions to plan, implement, and manage microfilming projects.
The one and a half day session will cover the follow topics:
planning microfilm projects, selecting and preparing materials,
microfilm technology and equipment, standards, inspection, and
quality control, agents of film deterioration, and proper microfilm
storage.  The class discussion covers traditional filming projects,
hybrid projects,  and "film-to-digital" conversion projects.

Workshop includes a hands-on quality control exercise including film
inspection, and a tour of a microfilming operation.

Cost is $165 SOLINET members, $205 Non-members. Early bird discounts
and late fees apply. Any institution in Georgia qualifies for the
member rate. For more information:
