Abstract:

Preservation of historical documents and related library materials is a growing problem in all types of libraries and institutions. Editors Carol Smallwood and Elaine Williams have pulled together the wisdom of practicing professionals to aid in dealing with the many issues that arise when preserving, managing, and digitizing important collections. This book contains chapters on physical preservation, collection management, cooperation with organizations and communities, various formats, and special projects. In addition, chapters cover repair and restoration of materials while taking into consideration the current state of funding for agencies with an interest in history. Contributors also shed light on how the racial, economic, and political dynamics of the past affect how collections are gathered, maintained, and presented today.
