NEDCC's Fall 2005 Preservation Workshop Series Dates:

BASIC BOOK REPAIR
Wednesday, September 28
Instructor: Lori Foley, Director of Field Service, NEDCC

This course is designed to provide both information about managing a book

pages.


IDENTIFICATION AND CARE OF PHOTOGRAPHS
Wednesday, October 5
Instructor: Monique C. Fischer, Senior Photograph Conservator, NEDCC

This workshop, an introduction to the preservation of photographs, will

deterioration, and conservation. Participants will learn to recognize
various photographic formats and will study the preservation problems
associated with each format type.


INTRODUCTION TO DIGITIZATION
Thursday, October 6
Instructor: David Green, Principal, Knowledge Culture Consulting

This course will give newcomers the tools they need to best position their
institution in the evolving digital ecology. What are the key questions to
be asked throughout the process of digitizing cultural material? Discover
the ways to make resources most visible, useful, and sustainable for a wide
universe of potential users.



HOLDINGS MAINTENANCE
Wednesday, October 19
Instructor: Aimée Primeaux, Field Service Representative, NEDCC

Holdings maintenance involves simple procedures that can prolong the life of
records. These actions, such as upgrading boxes and folders and removing
metal fasteners, can be incorporated into the daily work of an institution's
staff. This workshop will examine ways to implement a successful holdings
maintenance program at minimal cost.


BASIC PAPER REPAIR
Thursday, October 20
Instructor: Christopher Sokolowski, Assistant Paper Conservator, NEDCC

This course will introduce participants to the basic procedures of paper
conservation and their place in a comprehensive preservation program.

cleaning, mending, flattening, and encapsulation. Popular repair techniques
to avoid will be discussed, and a materials and suppliers list will be
provided.


NEDCC is grateful for support from the National Endowment for the
Humanities.
