Library preservation programs have focused traditionally on two areas: (1) conservation or restoration techniques to preserve the original item as an artifact; or (2) reformatting of items to microfilm or digital formats to preserve the intellectual content. A collections conservation program focuses on the maintenance or stabilization of endangered research materials. The cost effectiveness of treatments is maximized by batching work, using permanent durable material, and employing sound methods. This collections conservation concept will be demonstrated by illustrating treatments used by the Library of Congress and their comparable costs, including: library binding; mass deacidification; in-house repair and binding; box-making using an automated machine; and labeling using the Z39.50 protocol to download bibliographic information. Training and level of staff are also discussed. (Author/MES)
