Conservation Committee Activities
During the past year, individual members of the Conservation Committee
composed of Robin Barnard, Marie Copeland, Wanda Dole ( Chairman),
Claire McCann, Edward O'Hara, Mary Owings, and Judy Sackett, reported
on a variety of topics relating to conservation, including the
history of conservation, administration of conservation programs,
y bindery operations, environmental controls, and disaster.
Throughout the year, the Committee has been in contact with the
p University of Wisconsin Preservation Committee and has worked with
the Wisconsin Committee's Statement on the Preservation of Library
Materials. The Committee discussed the Wisconsin Statement and made
some progress toward deciding which aspects of the Statement might be
T incorporated into a UK policy.
E The reading on administration of conservation programs and the UW
Statement raised the point that preservation proposals should be
written into the Collection Development planning document and into a
UK Collection Development Statement. The Committee's recommendations
i for binding procedures which might be included in a UK Conservation
Statement were previously reported in The Green Bean, March 3, 1978.
= The Committee also reviewed Peter Waters' Procedures for Salvage of
' Water—Damaged Library Materials, the Corning Museum's Corning Flood:
Museum Under Water, and numerous articles on disasters and disaster
. . preparedness. Members of the Committee then drafted an eight-page
disaster preparedness plan.
