The Archives Conservation Discussion Group is very excited to hold,

    "Is it Real? The Value and Ethics of Using Surrogates"
    Friday, May 31, 2013

just after the BPG business meeting. Check the final 41st Annual AIC
meeting schedule for location details.

This discussion will delve into the issues, uses, and needs of
surrogacy of original materials in collections. There will be seven
short presentations from each panelist highlighting their
professional experiences working with surrogates followed by a 45
minute Q&A session. The panelists will speak about; creating
preservation protocols for a large collection of brittle materials;
issues facing digital archived copies; uses and complications of
surrogates for exhibitions; a curator's perspective on surrogate
use; and a conservator's role in educating private collectors on
surrogates. The expert panelists will surely answer any burning
questions you may have about the use, need, creation,
archival/ethical issues, and abuse of surrogates in your collection.

ACDG encourages all specialties join us in a lively discussion. We
recommend having questions prepared so you don't miss out on your
chance to ask these experts their advice and opinions on surrogacy
matters that relate to you and your collection.
