The Preservation Program Blueprint

Paperback
A complete guide to developing a library-wide preservation program, The Preservation Program Blueprint will help you to map out a system that is both preventative and curative. Placing the responsibilities of preservation on every staff member in each department, Higginbotham and Wild assert that by decentralizing preservation activities and integrating them into ongoing library functions, you will preserve materials effectively, efficiently, and with buy-in from staff. Apply their proven strategies to: * Create an around-the-building approach to preservation. * Implement preventative on-the-job techniques. * Identify who-does-what following the functional listing in the table of contents. Libraries of all types and sizes cannot afford to not involve all library staff in the preservation process. The new Blueprint shows you how to preserve materials in your collection by bringing all of the resources in your library to bear.
