about

Designed as a “how-to” manual, Practical Preservation and Conservation Strategies for Libraries provides librarians with practical information to help them grapple with specific preservation challenges by identifying areas of concern, optimizing the use of resources put towards preservation, and establishing goals for continual improvement over time. Straightforward and pragmatic, it helps a library to reduce immediate and long-term preservation costs, and strengthen a library’s collection development goals.

Topics include:

  • Preservation in the digital age
  • Establishing long-term preservation goals
  • Environmental conditions
  • Preservation needs of specific collections
  • Understanding use patterns for library materials
  • Identifying potential threats to a collection
  • Recognizing readily available preservation resources

Almost 50 photographs, figures, checklists, and other tools make this a practical guide libraries will use on a day-to-day basis.
