Preservation curriculum

From: Aimee Primeaux <aprimeaux>
Date: Wednesday, March 1, 2006
The Northeast Document Conservation Center (NEDCC) in Andover,
Massachusetts, in partnership with Simmons Graduate School of
Library and Information Science (GSLIS), is working on a "Librarians
for the 21st Century grant" from the Institute of Museum and Library
Services (IMLS) to create a preservation curriculum for Masters of
Library Science programs.

The project will develop ready-to-use lesson plans and downloadable
images for a semester-long course on preservation, facilitating the
inclusion of preservation in MLS programs across the country. In
order to test the curriculum, NEDCC is working with current
preservation educators, as well as members of the Regional Alliance
for Preservation (RAP).

Because one of the goals of the project is to create consensus about
content for a preservation course, we would appreciate your feedback
on the class outlines created by NEDCC's project advisory committee
members, made up of preservation educators and administrators. NEDCC
has created a blog to make these outlines available for feedback
during the fine-tuning process.

Please visit the Preservation Education Curriculum blog and leave
comments, suggestions, or opinions. We value your experience and we
welcome your insights.

No need to register. You may leave your name or comment anonymously.
Please respond by Monday, March 20, 2006. The committee will then
take your comments under advisement and expand the outlines into
lesson plans that include learning outcomes, activities, and
resources for teachers.

For more information, contact NEDCC's Field Service Representative,
Aimee Primeaux at aprimeaux [at] nedcc__org or 978-470-1010 ext. 220.
