FLICC Preservation Information Resource List

Federal Library and Information Center Committee
Preservation Working Group

The Preservation Working Group's Mission is--

to help plan, develop, and support strategies, programs, and surveys for federal libraries which will result in the implementation of Resolution 6 of the Second White House Conference on Library and Information Services (WCHLIS II) calling for "a national preservation policy to ensure the preservation of our information resources."

The Preservation Information Resource List is--

a means to further this mission through the dissemination of information on key resources which may be of use to federal libraries and information centers in preserving their collections.

The Preservation Information Resource List is composed of the following sections:

    I.  Advisory Organizations
   II.  Providers of Conservation and Preservation Services and Supplies
  III.  Providers of Conservation and Preservation Training
   IV.  Providers of Emergency and Disaster Recovery Services and Supplies
    V.  Periodicals Devoted to Conservation and Preservation

Additional entries will be incorporated in the Preservation Information Resource List periodically. Inclusion on this list implies no endorsement by the FLICC Preservation Working Group, and exclusion implies no criticism by the Group.
