	The Northeast Document Conservation Center (NEDCC) announces the
publication of the third edition of Preservation of Library & Archival
Materials: A Manual, in hardcover.  This revised and expanded edition,
edited by Sherelyn Ogden, has been available electronically on the NEDCC Web
site since March 1999, but this is the first time it has appeared in printed
form.  Rapid technical changes and their impact on the preservation
profession prompted NEDCC to update and expand the manual by adding
important contemporary topics that were not included in the previous
edition.  The Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), a Federal
agency that fosters innovation, leadership and a lifetime of learning, has
supported this project.  In addition, NEDCC receives major funding for its
field service program from the National Endowment for the Humanities.

The manual is approximately 412 pages in length and is comprised of 50
individual technical leaflets.  Every leaflet from the first two editions
has been updated to reflect new information and changing opinions.  In
addition, the third edition contains eight new leaflets, including Digital
Technology Made Simpler; The Relevance of Preservation in a Digital World;
Preservation Assessment and Planning; An Introduction to Fire Detection,
Alarm, and Automatic Fire Sprinklers; Collections Security: Planning and
Prevention for Libraries and Archives; and more.  The manual is one of few
preservation publications written in laymans language that is an
authoritative reference source for up-to-date scientific research.  Sections
include planning and prioritizing, the environment, emergency management,
storage and handling, reformatting, and conservation procedures.
Professional illustrations make the "how-to" leaflets easy to understand and
