'Doing more with less?'
Forum on skills development
British Library Conference Centre
96 Euston Road
London NW1 2DB
United Kingdom
30 November 2009

Caring for library and archive collections today demands new
knowledge and new skills--responding to climate change and
environmental impact, ensuring the survival of modern materials,
incorporating information technology into our professional talent
base. The first annual forum of the British Library Preservation
Advisory Centre showcases recent research and latest developments in
preservation learning and provides an opportunity to hear how
different methods of learning have been successfully applied to
preservation training. Discussion sessions will inform the future
skills development programme of the Preservation Advisory Centre.
