Seeking Anecdotes for ALA Discussion Group

The Collection Development and Curators and Conservators Discussion
Groups for the Rare Book and Manuscript Division will be holding a
joint meeting at American Library Association' annual meeting in a
few weeks. We are focusing our discussion on the preservation issues
that must be considered when accepting (or refusing all or parts of)
a collection, as well as the role of conservators in evaluating the
cost of conservation treatment of a collection prior to its arrival.
Lastly, how may this evaluation impact the price of the collection
or, if it is a gift, on the contract signed with the donor?

In anticipation, we are requesting examples of existing
documentation or anecdotes relating to this topic from other
institutions from both preservation and special collections staff.
Please reply to Jennifer Hain Teper (jhain [at] uiuc__edu) with any
suggestions, documentation, practices or experiences (good, bad and
ugly) that could aid in our examination of this topic *by June 20,
