LCCDG 2010 Call for Presenters

The Library Collections Conservation Discussion Group (LCCDG) of the
AIC Book and Paper Group is pleased to announce the 2010 session
topic:

    Conservation in the 21st Century: Revisiting past practices and
    their evolution in institutional settings

In keeping with this year's theme, LCCDG would like to highlight
treatment techniques for library collection materials as they have
been applied, modified and/or maintained in institutional settings
over time. The LCCDG and the Archives Conservation Discussion Group
are working together to prepare sessions that complement each other.

The LCCDG co-chairs are seeking individuals to present topics such
as:

    How the department is run, especially in light of difficult
    economic times (including how decisions are made about work done
    with in-house staff vs. contract staff and services)

    Types of projects and how they have changed over the years

    How shifting library priorities effect conservation, especially
    in light of digitization and Google-ization

    Use of professional development opportunities and collaborative
    efforts

    Adaptation of treatments with limited resources

Speakers are asked to prepare a ten- to fifteen-minute presentation
and provide a one-page handout for reference and Web-posting.

If you are interested in participating and sharing your experiences,
please contact us at the email addresses below with a short
description of your project by December 11, 2009.

Thank you for your interest and we look forward to seeing you in
Milwaukee.
