Preservation Conditions, Practices, and Needs in the General Libraries. A Report by the Preservation Committee.
Texas Univ., Austin. General Libraries.
The survey documented in this report was conducted in 1981 to investigate the preservation conditions, practices, and needs of the units of the University of Texas at Austin General Libraries. The report is divided into six major portions. The first five sections report the responses to questionnaires on specific formats: books and serials; audiovisual materials (including microforms); newspapers; maps; and archives, manuscripts, and broadsides. Processing, storage conditions, handling, and repair are considered in each section. The sixth section is concerned with environmental conditions, including air conditioning, humidity, lighting, and particulate control and related housekeeping functions. A narrative summary, preliminary recommendations on how to better environmental conditions or materials conservation, and collated responses to the questionnaires are provided for each section. Copies of the survey instruments are appended. (Author/RBF)
