Preservation Manual in Spanish Online


The Northeast Document Conservation Center (NEDCC) announces that the
Spanish translation of its publication, Preservation of Library & Archival
Materials: A Manual, is available online at NEDCC s Web site at
<www.nedcc.org>.  The translation was made by the National Library of
Venezuela, with support from the Council on Library and Information
Resources (CLIR).

The manual provides basic, practical information needed to enable
non-conservators to plan and implement sound collections care programs. The
manual is one of few preservation publications written in layman s language
that is an authoritative reference source for up-to-date scientific
research.  The major sections are: planning and prioritizing, the
environment, emergency management, storage and handling, reformatting, and
conservation procedures.  Professional illustrations make the "how-to"
leaflets easy to understand and use.  The translation makes a core
collection of preservation literature available for the first time in Spanish

The original manual in English was funded by The Institute of Museum and
Library Services (IMLS), a Federal agency that fosters innovation,
leadership and a lifetime of learning.  In addition, NEDCC receives major
funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities for its field
service program, which is the educational and consulting arm of the Center.

The Northeast Document Conservation Center is a nonprofit regional
conservation center specializing in the conservation of paper-based
materials including books, documents, photographs, and works of art on
paper.  It performs paper conservation, book binding, preservation
microfilming, and duplication of photographic negatives.  Its purpose is to
provide the highest quality conservation services and to serve as a source
of consultation and training for institutions that hold paper-based
collections.  The Center is located in Andover, Massachusetts, USA.
Additional information about the Northeast Document Conservation Center is
also available on its Web site at <www.nedcc.org>.
