Library Journal Review

This is a hardbound collection of invaluable "technical leaflets." Its publisher, the Northeast Document Conservation Center, maintains a prominent reputation for its preservation workshops, for its nurture of preservation awareness, and for its hands-on preservation work. This edition is almost twice the size of the 1994 version (Professional Media, LJ 12/94). Covering topics that range from disaster planning to reformatting nitrate negatives to the current state of digital technology, these pithy leaflets are extremely clear in their explanations. Often, as well, they are rich in updated references, suggested readings, and in addresses and phone numbers for contact organizations. Citing current, practicing experts such as Sally Buchanan and Howard Besser, these leaflets are useful for institutions of every size and focus. In addition they often provide the exact kind of basic preservation information sought by the general public. Strongly recommended for all libraries and archives.--Barry Chad, Carnegie Lib. of Pittsburgh (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
