Writing and using a preservation policy
Preservation Advisory Centre Training Day
Tuesday 21 May 2013
British Library Centre for Conservation
96 Euston Road, London NW1 2DB
A preservation policy provides a framework for thinking about the long-term aspects of collections management. This development day on preservation policies explains the purpose and benefits of a preservation policy, provides guidance on writing a policy for your organisation and gives examples of how policies are used by a number of different organisations. By the end of the day, participants will be able to:
- define what is meant by preservation
- explain what a preservation policy is and how this links to other strategic and business planning documents
- identify what needs to be included in a preservation policy
- describe issues that need to be considered when implementing a preservation policy
- create an action plan for writing or reviewing their own organisation's preservation policy.
Previous attendees found that the day helped with 'distinctions between policy, strategy, guidelines and action plans'; and provided 'practical information regarding how to develop an effective policy and what to include/exclude from it'.
The day is led by preservation and collections management consultant Jonathan Rhys-Lewis (ACR).
