Abstract:

This monograph provides some starting points for beginning preservation activities in libraries within a framework of three key essentials: awareness, judgment, and advocacy. In the first section, the text is concerned with how public and school libraries can both contribute to, and benefit from, the vast amount of preservation information that is available at national, state, and regional levels. Examples of preservation initiatives and programs by national, state, and regional groups are provided. The second section lists a number of resources for incorporating preservation-conscious procedures and skills into public and school libraries. The resources relate to the following preservation themes: planning/general approaches, environmental conditions, maintenance, repair, binding, local history, media, disasters and emergencies. In addition, some general examples of how to begin preservation activities are provided. In the third section titles of resources are given to promote preservation advocacy to library supporters and funders, vendors, and users. Concluding the monograph are annotated lists of comprehensive references and bibliographies about beginning preservation activities. A discussion of the national preservation agenda is appended.
