Archival 101: Dealing with Suppliers of Archival Products
Tuesday, May 11, 2010
2 p.m. EDT (1 p.m. CDT, 11 a.m. PDT)

    Do you need to purchase archival supplies for your organization
    or even yourself? Are you confused by the terminology and not
    sure about what the differences between the various vendors are?
    Not finding exactly what you are looking for and unsure about
    adapting different products? Archival 101 is designed to
    demystify the archival product market for the layperson and
    non-preservation specialist. The presentation will provide an
    overview of the conservation and preservation issues facing
    libraries, cultural organizations, and individuals, describe the
    terminology in use, discuss products and offer buying tips on
    the different ways these can be used. A list of links to other
    resources will also be provided. Archival 101 is designed for
    individuals with little or no experience and will also provide
    the more experienced user with helpful hints.

    Archival 101 is presented by Peter D. Verheyen, Head of
    Preservation and Conservation at Syracuse University. After
    beginning as work-study in preservation under John Dean at Johns
    Hopkins, he studied binding and conservation in Germany and
    Switzerland to become a rare book conservator working in private
    practice and research library preservation programs. He
    established the conservation lab at Syracuse for the treatment
    of special collections materials, and developed a high-density
    system for storing architectural drawings. In response to a need
    for efficient rehousing in anticipation of off-site storage he
    introduced Syracuse to the shrinkwrapping of volumes. The
    Archival 101 presentation was originally developed for call
    center staff at Gaylord Bros. when he worked there as Archival
    Product Manager. It has since been presented regionally to
    varying audiences. ALCTS is pleased to have Gaylord as a
    Corporate Partner for Preservation Week.

Mold Prevention and Remediation
Thursday, May 13, 2010
2 p.m. EDT (1 p.m. CDT, 11 a.m. PDT).

    This webinar will introduce attendees to the basic types of
    mold, and describe the environmental conditions that promote
    mold growth in home and library collections. Prevention as well
    as remediation should mold growth occur will be covered. This
    webinar is geared to participants with little experience, but
    with lots of questions and concerns.

    Mold is presented by Michele Brown, book conservator at Cornell
    University since 1995. She received a B.A. in English from
    Fordham University, and a Certificate in Hand Bookbinding and
    Restoration from the Camberwell School of Art and Crafts in
    1977. She is enrolled in the distance learning MLIS program at
    the University of Alabama, and is scheduled to receive that
    degree in August 2010. She has conducted numerous workshops
    around New York State in disaster planning, care and handling,
    and mold prevention and remediation. In addition, she teaches
    bookbinding classes, conducts collection surveys, and maintains
    a small private practice.
