Preservation Concerns in Off-Site Storage Spaces
MetadataShow full item record
While many collecting repositories are familiar with preservation considerations for their primary, on-site storage facilities, off-site storage is by definition physically separate and as a result, sometimes less frequently considered in preservation needs assessments, policy development, environmental management programs, emergency preparedness and response efforts, security plans, preservation resource allocation, etc. The discussion will be led by a preservation professional who will share recommendations for, as well as solicit feedback from, collections staff interested in learning about preservation considerations that impact offsite storage facilities. The overall goal of the discussion will be to determine achievable tactics for incorporating offsite storage into an institution’s strategic preservation planning initiatives.
