I forgot to mention yesterday that this week is Preservation Week, shame on me! The Association for Library Collections and Technical Services (ALCTS) division of the American Library Association (ALA) sets aside one week per year to highlight the importance of preserving our collections.
Preservation is a topic that is very important to me, as curator of the Harvey Mercheum permanent collection. Long-time readers of the Mercheum Blog may recall that I took a continuing education course in caring for collections.
In addition to special events, the Preservation Week website has free webinars, advice and other resources. Here is the link again, be sure to visit:
