Preservation Week

April 24-30, 2011 is preservation week. Brought to libraries across the country by the Association for Library Collections and Technical Services (ALCTS), in partnership with the Library of Congress and the Institute of Museum and Library Services, this national awareness campaign was developed to promote the understanding and importance of care for personal and community cultural heritage collections regardless of their format.
American Libraries Magazine recently published an article that gives a nice overview of the project.
The ALCTS Preservation Week Website has lots of useful info and resources including preservation facts,
a bibliography, and ideas for getting kids involved.
