1981: Conserving and Preserving Library Materials

 

Allerton Park Institute Proceedings (no. 27, 1981); Edited by Katherine Luther Henderson and William T. Henderson

A dozen years have passed since a landmark conference at the University of Chicago Graduate Library School brought to the profession's attention the serious problems of deterioration and opened up for the decade of the seventies many solutions which are now being implemented. In choosing the topic for the annual Allerton Park Institute, the faculty of the Graduate School of Library and Information Science at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign thought it appropriate, at this time, to assess the state-of-the-art and to help set the objectives for the 1980s in conserving and preserving library and archival materials.

The complete text of the Institute is available here as well as the individual papers. The papers included here are:
