Title:Expanding preservation resources: The corps of practitioners and the core of knowledge
Author(s):Darling, Pamela W.
Subject(s):Preservation of materials
Library materials--Conservation and restoration
Abstract:True though it is that preservation information is still scarce, scattered, primitive, and often inaccurate, the creation of a comprehensive data base on the topic cannot by itself solve the preservation problems of the nation's libraries and archives. Information is valuable only when put to use. Information is a tool, but people do the work. Though the distinction may appear academic, to focus on developing informed people, instead of focusing on information, is an important step in improving our collective ability to respond to urgent preservation needs. With that distinction in mind, I will describe several current projects and programs which aim to develop informed people, and speculate about some future possibilities.
