Library Print Preservation: An Administrative Briefing

George J. Soete with Janice Mohlhenrich Lathrop • 2003 • ISBN 0-918006-99-6 • 29 pp.

This publication responds to a need articulated by ARL library directors for a brief non-technical survey of preservation, preservation methods--their appropriate uses, advantages, and disadvantages--and preservation costs. It is intended to provide an overview and to help library administrators in their local planning for preservation and in their communication with preservation specialists.
