SI 581: Preservation Administration

Preservation combines applied science and technology with the management of resources (human, physical, monetary) to ensure the persistence of information with continuing value for access by present and future generations. This course provides an overview of the materials commonly used as information carriers today -paper as well as photographic, audiovisual, and digital media- and introduces the basic principles, policies, and procedures for protecting that information from loss, damage, deterioration, and obsolescence. A group project provides the opportunity to apply these principles in the setting of an actual library, archive, or museum collection. View syllabus
