Collection Conservation Treatment: A Resource Manual for Program Development and Conservation Technician Training, Including "Report on Training the Trainers: A Conference on Training in Collection Conservation, Berkeley, California, April 28-May 2, 1992."
Jones, Maralyn, Comp.
The documentation of collection conservation treatments and program management information compiled in this publication are the result of the "Training the Trainers" conference in April 1992 at the University of California, Berkeley. Only treatments appropriate for general, usually circulating, collections have been included, emphasizing low unit cost, high productivity and preservation of information rather than the conservation of artifacts. Treatment documentation for the following are included: conservation laboratory management; book structures and basic working methods; treatment decision making; pockets; protective enclosures; pamphlet binding; reinforcement of paperback bindings; photocopying replacement pages; paper repair; tightening hinges and hinge repair; tipping in and hinging in; textbook consolidation; spine lining and hollow spine lining; rebacking and case repair; recasing (including replacement of endsheets); and case replacement (including textblock consolidation and replacement of endsheets). A selected bibliography of six manuals comprising the core literature for collection conservation treatment is included; and the report on the "Training the Trainers" conference is appended. (JLB)
