The Preservation Assessment Survey provides statistical evidence of
preservation practice and enables institutions to determine
preservation priorities.

This Preservation Advisory Centre workshop is designed for library
and archive staff. It 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 to:

    Plan a survey
    Select a statistically valid sample
    Assess the condition of collection items
    Identify factors affecting their preservation.

There will be ample opportunity for discussion giving participants
the chance to discuss how a survey will work best for their
organisation. The workshop includes practical sessions and is
popular amongst previous participants "I got a much better
background on the purpose and scope of the surveys. They provide a
great evidence base for advocacy".

Workshop fee: UKP60 +VAT (UKP72)

The Preservation Assessment Survey (PAS) is a standardised survey
methodology which has been used by over 300 libraries and archives
in the UK and Ireland since its launch in 2001. Participants have
successfully used the results to support funding bids and to inform
internal planning and budgeting for preservation. For further
