Library Preservation Today!

The Association for Library Collections and Technical Services (ALCTS) is
pleased to offer Library Preservation Today!, a virtual preconference
presented by instructors from our popular “Fundamentals of
Preservation”Web
course. Registration is open, so sign up early to make sure you get a
spot.

This three-day (June 16 – 18) virtual preconference introduces the
fundamentals of managing preservation efforts in libraries, archives and
historical societies. At the end of this preconference, participants will
value preservation as a formal library function and how it reflects and
supports the institutional mission; appreciate the primary role of
preventive care, including good storage conditions, in extending the useful
life of collections and understand some of the challenges in preserving
digital content and what the implications are for the future of scholarship.
