MANAGING PRESERVATION
A Series of Five Coordinated Seminars
October 2009 to September 2010

MANAGING PRESERVATION IS A SEMESTER-EQUIVALENT COURSE that provides information on issues and technologies needed to design, implement, and manage an effective preservation program for documents, books, photographs, and other paper-based materials, as well as digital collections. MANAGING PRESERVATION guides the student through a full preservation assessment of their institution as well as providing the framework for writing an institutional disaster plan. Each session consists of lectures, discussions, and small group exercises. The Managing Preservation blog offers a forum for continued discussion between seminars.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
Managing Preservation is tailored to full-time librarians, archivists,
town clerks, curators, and collections or records managers who have (at least) part-time responsibility for preservation of historical or
