The British Library Preservation Advisory Centre is pleased to announce a training day:

 

Damaged books and bound archives: Practical first steps

 

Sheffield: 9 November 2010

Sheffield University, 

Halifax Hall, 

Endcliffe, 

Vale Road, 

Sheffield, 

S10 3ER 

 

This training day is aimed at librarians and archivists. It provides an overview of how books and bound archives become damaged, action to minimise damage, and first steps to address common forms of damage.  By the end of the day delegates will be able to: 

 

*         recognise different types of damage; 

*         understand how damage is caused;

*         minimise damage to books in their own organisation's collections;

*         identify appropriate treatment options;

*         make a protective enclosure for an item;

*         recognise when volunteers could be used and when a conservator is needed.

 

Delegates who attended the previous training day on damaged books and bound archives commented that they gained "Practical information about damage and the realisation that I should constantly monitor the condition of items on the shelves"; and learnt "Practical skills in tape tying and producing Melinex covers."  The day is led by accredited conservator, Caroline Bendix whose clients include the National Trust and English Heritage.

 

This event is part of a Preservation Learning Programme jointly sponsored by RLUK and the British Library Preservation Advisory Centre.
