Training day: Writing and Using a Preservation Policy
British Library Preservation Advisory Centre
11 June 2012

How does your institution approach long-term collections management?
What are you keeping, for how long, and why?
What measures can you put in place to ensure sustainable use and
enhanced access to collections over time?

A preservation policy addresses these questions. It is a powerful
tool providing clarity, accountability and a sound basis for
communication for organisations seeking to manage collections over
the long-term.

Whether you are writing a preservation policy for the first time or
revising it, this training day will provide you with a framework to
build the policy and then put it into practice. It includes case
studies and the opportunity to begin to write your policy under the
guidance of preservation and collections management consultant
Jonathan Rhys-Lewis (ACR).

The day is aimed at librarians, archivists and collections managers
with responsibility for policies, strategies and planning. The
emphasis of this training day is on analogue library and archive
collections though reference to digital preservation is made as part
of an holistic approach to collections management.

Cost: UKP100 (GBP) + VAT including lunch and refreshments
