LAPNet was established in January 1987 to meet the preservation
needs of librarians, conservators, archivists and records managers
in Los Angeles City and County. It is managed by a Steering
Committee drawn from libraries and other record repositories. LAPNet
aims to serve as a forum of information exchange and foster the
development of preservation and cooperative programs among all the
libraries in the area, irrespective of their type or size.
