Preservation Education in ARL Libraries. SPEC Kit 113.
This kit is the result of a written request for sample materials from 35 ARL (Association of Research Libraries) members known to have active preservation programs. Twenty-three libraries responded, and of those, 16 contributed documents--some of which are included here. This kit contains: four preservation-related policy statements; 32 examples of staff training materials, for preservation orientation, general information, audiovisual programs, specific information, treatment procedures, library newsletters, and hands-on workshops; 14 examples of reader education, including handouts, newspapers and other publication articles, and signs; 6 examples of donor information; and 4 descriptions of exhibits. This kit was developed partially to supplement and update a Resource Notebook on Preservation that was published as part of the Preservation Planning Program. The institutions represented are Columbia University, Stanford University, New York Public Library, State University of New York at Albany, Yale University, University of Connecticut, Southern Illinois University, Brigham Young University, University of Michigan, University of Texas at Austin, Princeton University, University of Utah, University of Cincinnati, and University of Missouri at Columbia.
