ACDG 2010 Call for Presenters

The Archives Conservation Discussion Group (ACDG) of the AIC Book
and Paper Group is pleased to announce the 2010 session topic:

    Working in an unstable economy: Experiences and insight on the
    conservation of paper-based materials in private practice

This year the ACDG theme aims to highlight treatment techniques for
paper-based materials such as books, paper, and photographs as they
have been used, modified, or maintained in the private practice
setting. The co-chairs are seeking individuals to present on topics
such as:

    How the business is run, especially in light of tough economic

    Types of projects and how they may have changed over the years

    Use of professional development opportunities

    Adaptation of treatments with limited resources

    Specific treatments typical of a private practice (such as book
    conservators often having to work on family bibles, etc.) and
    how they may differ from conservators working for institutions

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 as a private conservator of
paper-based materials and are interested in sharing your insight and
experiences, please contact us by December 11, 2009 at
acdg.chair<-at->gmail<.>com with a short description of your project.
