What are you doing when you throw things away?

Fowler, Christine (2012) What are you doing when you throw things away? At In Safe Hands? Guaranteeing our Collections, United Kingdom. 6 pp.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Other)


A Research Libraries UK and Preservation Advisory Centre joint seminar for RLUK members which explored the relationship between research libraries' approaches to preservation and conservation and the wider context of their overall strategy for collection management.

This one day seminar examined how research libraries are addressing collections issues in terms of decision making, risk assessment and prioritisation. Speakers presented on using preservation as a strategy now and in the future; using digital surrogates as a preservation strategy; issues around disposal and the need to preserve the national collection. The seminar consisted of a mixture of presentations and breakout discussion sessions and provided the opportunity to consider ways to take forward the work completed as part of the jointly funded three-year Preservation Learning Project which ends in March 2012.
