Organizing for Preservation in ARL Libraries. SPEC Kit 116.
Godden, Irene P.; Moon, Myra Jo
Recognizing recent efforts by members of the Association of Research Libraries (ARL) in establishing departments or designating full-time staff for preservation efforts, the Systems and Procedures Exchange Center (SPEC) undertook a survey to identify ways research libraries are reorganizing for these new activities. Telephone interviews were conducted with 27 libraries identified as having a preservation department or planning one. This kit includes initial planning statements, rationales for program placement, organization charts, and job descriptions. Documents from the following universities are included: Brigham Young University; University of California at Berkeley; University of Chicago; Columbia University; University of Connecticut; Cornell University; University of Iowa; University of Michigan; Ohio State University; Stanford University; Southern Illinois University at Carbondale; University of Texas at Austin; Texas A&M University; University of Virginia; and Yale University. A short summary of the survey results which introduces the collection of documents covers patterns of organization, technical services, collection development, administrative services, and issues and trends. A list of libraries contacted concludes the report. (THC)
