Photographic Preservation and Conservation: Have you just completed
a photographic preservation survey? Concerned about the condition of
your photographs? Struggling to identify or catalogue them? Then
we'd like to hear from you. We are looking for case studies that
involve the preservation and conservation of photographs.  We would
particularly like to hear from students but welcome all
contributions.  Projects can be large or small, ongoing or
completed. Subjects we hope will be covered at the meeting are:

    *   Case studies of remedial conservation projects
    *   Cataloguing  methodologies and practice
    *   Identification of photographic materials and processes
    *   Practical preservation tips
    *   Special collections in small specialist libraries and
    *   Digitisation as a preservation tool for photographs
    *   Family and local history collections; slide collections
    *   Photograph albums
    *   Storage and handling of photographic materials

Proposals for papers covering these issues would be most welcome.
