University of Virginia Library Preservation Planning Project Report.
Association of Research Libraries, Washington, DC. Office of Management Studies.
This self-study, undertaken in March 1981 to collect and analyze data regarding the library's preservation problems and to develop a program addressing these needs, is presented in four sections. The first briefly describes the major findings of the study. The following section summarizes the major areas of need identified by an analysis of the data collected and a review of the recommendations of the task forces, including: environmental control; organization and coordination of preservation activities of staff and users; provision of facilities, equipment, and supplies for preservation activities; crisis management; and budgeting and funding for preservation. The third section presents goals and objectives for a comprehensive planning project, and the final section consists of detailed action plans for implementing these goals over the next several years. The plans identify specific steps to be taken, the staff members or groups to carry out each step, and time tables for completion. A list of participants in the preservation planning project and a 4-item bibliography are provided. (RBF)
