One New Thing: Where to find info on preservation of library materials.

Looking for resources on preservation of books and paper documents, I’ve found a site that has an incredible amount of information on preservation of library and museum artefacts. It is the Conserve-O-Grams from the U.S National Parks Service Museum Management Program, and the site includes not only your traditional library items such as books, tapes, photographs, but also furniture, biological specimens, textiles, and even stone. There’s also some “Salvage at a Glance” material that could be very useful in the case of an emergency – bookmark this site now, just in case!

I found the wonderful Cyndi’s List has a good list of links for Preservation and Conservation if you are looking for more.
