I am pleased to announce the following program in the Safety Net series, sponsored by the Library of Congress FLICC Preservation Working Group and the Preservation Directorate.
After the Disaster: Replace, Recover or Digitize?
Should you replace, recover, reformat or remove? What are the best methods for providing access to titles damaged in a disaster? Join us in evaluating steps for disaster recovery using various options and workflows. The Library of Congress has recently awarded a disaster recovery contract now used in conjunction with replacement, in-house recovery, contractual recovery, and digitization of titles damaged by a disaster. LC Preservation Directorate staff will present examples and lead a discussion of how to set up work plans - large scale and small - to deal effectively with damaged materials.
