Editorial Reviews

"This volume will be a very useful source for librarians, archivists, paraprofessional staff, administrators, and preservation professionals who are engaged in educating their communities about preservation issues...an excellent 'one-stop' resource for anyone looking for concrete suggestions for educational programs aimed at patrons and staff.... [This book] will be an important addition to the preservation literature, pulling together information that is essential to effective preservation programs but that has not been widely and easily accessible in the past."-Ann Russell Executive Director Northeast Document Conservation Center
