Preservation management training and education: developing a sector-wide approach

Preservation management training and education: developing a sector-wide approach

Graham Matthews and Stella Thebridge, New Library World, 2001, Vol. 102 No. 11, pp. 443-452The authors address the training needs of archivists, librarians and museum staff involved in preserving the national heritage and consider how these domains’ needs might be met in a co-ordinated and collaborative manner across the cultural heritage sector, and within the context of educational provision. The paper draws on a recent Library and Information Commission funded research project, “Review of current preservation management training in the UK and abroad”, and the 1999 National Preservation Office seminar on the subject. It relates this to work of the National Preservation Office, Resource, and other professional initiatives, and suggests how sector-wide training and education might be developed. It poses questions for the consideration of LIS educators. Recommendations encourage the development of existing links and training initiatives, widening involvement and collaboration within and without the sector, and co-ordination of preservation management training nationally.
