ACDG 2009 Call for Presenters

The Archives Conservation Discussion Group (ACDG) of the AIC Book
and Paper Group is pleased to announce the 2009 session topic:

    Conservation and Preservation approaches for stabilizing large
    scale collections

The theme is complimentary to the Library Collections Conservation
Discussion Group (LCCDG) theme of LCCDG 2.0-New Directions, which
will highlight advances in item-level treatment techniques. ACDG
will look at the same treatment advances applied more broadly to
large scale collections such as triage treatment and preparation of
collections for a move, digitization project, or general cataloging
and processing. The co-chairs are seeking individuals to present on
all types of large scale conservation efforts of paper-based
collections in museums or libraries. Speakers are asked to prepare a
ten to fifteen minute presentation, and provide a one-page handout
for reference and web-posting.

If you have experience working on innovative collections-based
approaches to treatment or housing and are interested in
participating, please contact us at acdg.chair<-a t->gmail< . >com with a
short description of your project by January 16, 2009.
