      ALCTS webinar: Archival 101: Dealing with Suppliers of Archival Products


      Date: April 25, 2013


      All webinars are one hour in length and begin at 11am Pacific, noon Mountain, 1pm Central, and 2pm Eastern time.


       Do you need to purchase archival supplies for your organization or even yourself?


      Are you confused by the terminology and not sure about the differences between the various vendors?


      Not finding exactly what you are looking for and unsure about adapting different products?


      Archival 101 is designed to demystify the archival product market for the layperson and non-preservation specialist. The presentation will provide an overview of the conservation and preservation issues facing libraries, cultural organizations, and individuals; describe the terminology in use; discuss products and offer buying tips on the different ways these can be used. A list of links to other resources will also be provided.



      ALCTS thanksGaylord for its generous support of this webinar and Preservation Week.



      Who should attend? Archival 101 is designed for individuals with little or no experience and will also provide the more experienced user with helpful hints.



      Presenter: Peter D. Verheyen, Head of Preservation and Conservation at Syracuse University.


      After beginning as work-study in preservation under John Dean at Johns Hopkins, Verheyen studied binding and conservation in Germany and Switzerland to become a rare book conservator working in private practice and research library preservation programs. He established the conservation lab at Syracuse for the treatment of special collections materials, and developed a high-density system for storing architectural drawings among other things.


      The Archival 101 presentation was originally developed for call center staff at Gaylord Bros. when he worked there as Archival Product Manager. It has since been presented regionally to varying audiences.
