Following the section’s business meeting, we will explore the intersection between preservation and public services though a panel discussion. After the panel, we will brainstorm ways of bringing preservation into the reading room and will begin to build a guide of Best Practices for Materials Handling and Preservation in the Reading Room.
Panelists
  • Daniel McCormack, CA, Archivist/Records Manager, Town of Burlington, Massachusetts: Representing the perspective of a lone arranger and archivist at a government agency, McCormack will present his perspective on instituting a preservation mentality in his patron base.
  • Erin Hammeke, Senior Conservator for Special Collections, Duke University Libraries: Representing the perspective of a conservator, Hammeke will speak to the necessity of educating library staff on proper handling and preservation theory so that staff members can pass this knowledge on to patrons.
  • Greta Reisel Browning, Reference Archivist/Librarian and Curator of the Rhinehart Collection in Special Collections at Appalachian State University: Representing the perspective of a special collections librarian at a public university, Browning will speak about instructing students on proper handling and will explore how preservation actions can sometimes interfere with and limit access.
