Staff Training and User Awareness in Preservation Management.
Boomgaarden, Wesley L.
This resource guide briefly defines, describes, outlines, and exemplifies a program with the goal of reaching library employees and library users with a message that states the positive benefits of enhanced collection preservation, longevity, usability, and access. The guide is organized and arranged to enable a library to evaluate its current preservation communication to staff and users and to begin or augment its own programs. Suggestions are made for a start-up effort, and a more fully developed program is also described. Lists are provided of the care and handling concepts to transmit to staff and users. Examples are provided from the practices of other libraries. Twenty-three articles dealing with staff training and user awareness are presented, and a list of 31 additional resources is included for supplemental reading. (SLD)
