Managing Preservation:
A Series of Five Coordinated Workshops

Presented by the Northeast Document Conservation Center (NEDCC)

Application Deadline: September 20, 2006

Would you like to further your preservation education? Is your
institution planning to develop a preservation program or update an
existing program? Has your institution had a preservation planning
survey? Are you now ready to take the next step? NEDCC has designed
a program just for you.

The Managing Preservation Workshop series is designed to provide
preservation training for staff of small to mid-sized museums,
historical organizations, archives, libraries, and other records

The workshops will provide the information needed to design,
implement, and maintain an effective preservation program for
documents, books, photographs, and other paper-based materials. Each
participant will learn how to prepare a basic preservation plan with
concrete, realistic goals for future activities.

The program is tailored to full-time professionals with part-time
preservation responsibilities. each session will include
pre-workshop assignments that will put concepts to practical use and
supply information for subsequent sessions. Instruction will
strongly emphasize decision-making and application of information to
the participant's institution. Sessions will include a combination
of lectures, discussion, and small group exercises, with some
hands-on training.

Faculty will include:

    Nick Artim, Fire Safety Network; Ernest Conrad, Landmark
