When planning renovation and building projects in libraries and
archives, close attention to collections care and preservation
issues is a must. During moves and renovations, collections are
exposed to additional dangers, including poor environmental
conditions, dirt, physical damage, and the possibility of disasters
such as flood and fires. Environmental control, equipment, and
storage facilities are important considerations in planning for both
new buildings and renovations.

This full-day conference is designed to assist those whose
institutions are planning and/or implementing a new building or
renovation project. The sessions will focus on preservation issues
as they relate to planning, design, construction, moving
collections, and disasters. Speakers will include architects,
library administrators, disaster preparedness experts, and an
environment specialist. Case studies combined with general
information sessions will provide information on a broad range of
pertinent subjects.

Speakers are Don Cogdell, President, Cogdell and Mendrala
Architects, PC; Michael Trinkley, Director, Chicora Foundation; Ann
Hamilton, Associate Dean of the Library, Georgia Southern
University; Alfred Lemmon, Director, Williams Research Center,
Historic New Orleans Collection; Scott Devine, Head, Preservation
Department, North Carolina State University Libraries; Mary
Molinaro, Acting Dean of Libraries, University of Kentucky; and
Deborah Freeland, Area Vice President, Arthur J. Gallagher and Co.
