Join us for an open forum to update colleagues on the developing joint US/Canadian facility standard. Michele Pacifico, co-chair of the Technical Subcommittee on Archival Facility Guidelines (TS-AFG), and members of the subcommittee, will discuss some of the challenges in developing the revised standard for facilities and the “new thinking" about preservation and sustainable systems, review the open issues and draft content, pose questions, and seek comments on the kind of information members would like to see in the revised standard. Jeremy Linden, an incoming member of TS-AFG, will provide an overview of the Image Permanence Institute's (IPI) new Energy-Saving Methodology for Library and Archives Environments, a user guide to testing and implementing sustainability strategies for collections preservation environments. The creation of the Methodology was funded by a 2013-2017 IMLS National Leadership Grant.
All are welcome and encouraged to participate!
