Collections Conservation.
DeCandido, Robert
Collections conservation is an approach to the preservation treatment of books and book-like materials that is conceptualized and organized in terms of large groups of materials. This guide is intended to enable a library to evaluate its current collections conservation activities. The introduction describes collections conservation and gives program development guidance. A selection of the following readings from the published literature provides an overview of programs and information on standardized repair procedures: (1) "A Manual of Step-by-Step Procedures for the Maintenance and Repair of Library Materials: Second Edition" (Carolyn C. Morrow and Carole Dyal); (2) "Tip-Ins and Pockets" (Jane Greenfield); (3) "A Simple Workstation for the Conservation of Library Materials" (Illinois Cooperative Conservation Program); (4) "Preservation Enclosures" (Hedi Kyle); (5) "Understanding Treatment Options,""Tightening the Hinges of a Case-Bound Book,""Double Tray Box" and "Appendix 1: Decision-Making Checklist for Book Repair" (Carolyn C. Morrow and Carole Dyal); (6) "Repairing Paper Artifacts" and "Surface Cleaning Paper" (Sherelyn Ogden); (7) "Polyester Encapsulation" (Mary L. Rizenthaler); (8) "Harvard University Widener Library Conservation Services: Institutional Profile" (Nancy Schrock and David Moore); and (9) "The Book Repair Program at Brigham Young University: An Institutional Profile" (Randy Silverman).
