2nd announcement conference `Preservation Management'

With apologies for crossposting.

                      SECOND ANNOUNCEMENT

           `Preservation management: between policy and practice'

European conference organized by 
European Commission on Preservation and Access (ECPA)
Core Programme on Preservation and Conservation, International Federation
of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA-PAC)
Koninklijke Bibliotheek (KB, national library of the Netherlands)
The Hague, 19-21 April 1999

In recent years the realization has grown that in order to guarantee
continued access to their collections, archives and libraries have to
develop overall preservation policies that fit in with general principles
of collection management. The approach has shifted from traditional
conservation of single items to large-scale preventive measures and
substitution programmes.

Preservation now covers a wide range of activities, from storage and
handling to microfilming and digitization. The challenge for libraries and
archives is to define preservation policies in which each of these methods
has its place. 

The Koninklijke Bibliotheek, IFLA-PAC and the ECPA are jointly organizing a
3-day conference, which will focus on organizational, financial and
managerial aspects of preservation. The central theme will be the
interaction between theory and practice.

Case studies will be presented that are illustrative of efforts in various
European countries and should shed light on such questions as how one plans
and costs a large preservation project, and how a preservation programme
can be realized step by step.
