A satellite meeting on "Library Preservation and Conservation in the 90s" will be held in Budapest, Hungary on August 15-17, 1995, at the National Szechenyi Library. This meeting is being organized by the IFLA (International Federation of Library Associations) Section on Conservation, in cooperation with the IFLA Preservation and Conservation Core Program.
