FOURTH PRESERVATION AWARENESS WORKSHOP
TO BE HELD AT LIBRARY OF CONGRESS ON APRIL 13

        The problems of keeping, organizing and storing old family
photographs, important papers, or special books that are fading,
yellowing and growing ever more fragile are common to individuals as
well as to libraries and museums around the world.
        The Library of Congress is offering its fourth annual free
workshop to help members of the public learn more about handling,
cleaning, preserving and storing these valuable materials.
        The first preservation awareness workshop, held in 1996,
proved so successful, with more than 600 people in attendance, that
the Library's Preservation Directorate decided to make the workshop
an annual event.  Once again, the general public will have an
opportunity to view demonstrations and gather information from
conservators and other specialists at the Library of Congress on April
13, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.  No reservations are necessary.
        This year the workshop will be held in the Librarian's
Reception Room, LJ 119, in the northwest corner of the first floor of
the Thomas Jefferson Building, with presentations taking place in the
Coolidge Auditorium, on the ground floor of the Jefferson Building.
Persons wishing to attend should enter the Jefferson Building through
the Visitors' Center entrance, on the west ground level.
        For the second year, Allan J. Stypeck, host of the popular
public radio show "The Bookguys," will be available all day to
appraise (free of charge) old books, prints, photographs, manuscripts
and sound recordings.
        In addition, professional conservators, members of the
American Institute for
-  over -
Conservation, will be on hand to assess the condition of personal
books, documents and photographs and to offer specific conservation
treatment options and storage advice.
Co-sponsored by the Library's Center for the Book and the
Preservation Directorate, the workshop is part of the Library's
celebration of National Library Week.
        Throughout the day, visitors will be able to see live
demonstrations of gold tooling, paper mending, book sewing, materials
testing, and matting and hinging of works of art on paper.  Library
staff at table displays will be available to answer questions as well
as
provide printed information on the handling, cleaning and storage of
books, papers and documents, fine prints, photographs, CDs, sound
recordings and motion picture film.
        Slide presentations will focus on some of the factors that
place personal collections at risk and help workshop attendees
determine when it is wise to seek professional advice.
        In addition to the Library's professional conservation and
curatorial  staff, representatives of nonprofit professional
associations in the preservation field as well as companies that
manufacture and distribute conservation products will be on hand to
answer questions and offer other information on preservation products
and issues.
        The Library of Congress is the largest library in the world.
It  contains 115 million items, including more than 17 million books,
4 million maps, 13 million visual materials,
2 million sound recordings and 49 million manuscripts.  The mission
of the Library's Preservation Directorate is to preserve these
collections for future generations.  Founded in 1972, the preservation
program has trained many distinguished scientists, conservators and
other experts in the preservation field; the program is also open to
interns from all over the  world, who learn while working with the
Library's professional staff.  Many of the conservation methods
developed at the Library have become standard procedures in libraries
and archives worldwide.
        The Center for the Book in the Library of Congress was
established in 1977 to stimulate public interest in books, reading and
libraries and to encourage the study of the book as an artifact, art
form and means of communication.  Its projects are supported by
contributions from individuals, corporations and foundations.
