Call for Presenters
The Library Collections Conservation Discussion Group (LCCDG)

The Library Collections Conservation Discussion Group (LCCDG) of the
Book and Paper Group is pleased to announce the 2008 session topic:
Digitization Project Case Studies.

This topic was born from the lively brainstorming session held
during the joint EMG-LCCDG discussion group at the 2007 AIC annual

In preparation for the 2008 discussion group, the co-chairs are
seeking individuals to present short, informal case studies of
digitization projects that include conservation work. We are
interested in all types of digital imaging projects, from
co-operative efforts with large corporations to online exhibitions
to preservation reformatting efforts. Participants are encouraged to
share experience working with different sizes and formats of library
collections a-books, manuscripts, photographs, drawings, ephemera,

Participants will prepare a ten minute presentation on a
digitization project from their institution that describes the size
and scope of the project, funding source(s), staffing, project
workflows, selection criteria, conservation treatment workflows, and
treatments. The presentation would conclude with descriptions of
lessons learned and recommendations to colleagues. Participants are
encouraged to share handouts on their project, everything from
simple organizational charts and workflow diagrams to care and
handling guidelines.

If you are interested in participating and sharing your experiences
with your colleagues please contact us with a short description of
your project by December 15, 2007.

Thank you for your interest and we look forward to seeing you at the
2008 LCCDG session in Denver,
