Workshop on Preservation Assessment Survey (PAS)

From: John Webster <blpac<-at->

Preservation Assessment Survey Workshop (PAS)
British Library
26 September 2012

The Preservation Assessment Survey (PAS) is a preservation
management tool that enables organisations to quickly gather
information on the state of preservation of library or archive
collections. It assesses the preservation measures in place
(handling procedures, storage conditions, physical protection,
environment, security, and emergency planning) alongside demand,
usability and significance. Damage to items is also assessed. PAS
has been widely used to provide evidence for funding applications,
as a planning tool and to support collection management activities.

Designed for library and archive staff, this workshop introduces the
Preservation Assessment Survey methodology and demonstrates the
benefits of carrying out a survey. No previous knowledge of
preservation is required. Participants will learn how to plan a
survey, select a statistically valid sample, assess the condition of
collection items and identify factors affecting their preservation.

Cost: UKP60 + VAT (including lunch and refreshments).
