NARA Releases Preservation Week Poster + Talks from 2011 Preservation Conference
From a Guest Post by on the NARAtions Blog by Aimee Primeaux, Preservation Program Officer at the National Archives:
Preservation is at the heart of what we do here at NARA: Preservation Programs has joined forces with SAA’s Preservation Section to create an e-poster in recognition of Preservation Week. This poster outlines basic strategies to preserve your collections, whether you are an archivist, librarian, or family historian. We encourage you to share this poster with your staff and the general public. It is sized to 8 1/2″ x 11″ so that it can be printed on any color printer.
You can download the free poster here: http://www.archives.gov/preservation/records-emergency/pdf/may-day-poster-2011.pdf.
Also in recognition of Preservation Week, we’ve released a public wiki, which features the talks from the 2011 Preservation Conference, “Conservation² = Preserving our Collections x Our Environment.”
