The 2014 theme encompasses many areas for exploration during the BPG
session, such as: the impact of environmental sustainability on
decision making; the increasing role of preventive conservation; the
effects of architectural design on preservation needs; new
developments in collections care and housing; new treatment
techniques that improve on traditional methods; and the impact of
digitization efforts on conservation activities.

Abstracts for formal presentations in the BPG session may be
submitted by current BPG members, other Specialty Group members, and
related professionals. Presentations will be 20-25 minutes in length
with a standard 5-10 minute question-and-answer period. Please note
that speakers are not compensated and must register for the meeting

If you would like to submit an abstract to BPG you must identify the
Book and Paper Group session as one of your choices.
