This week marks the first national Preservation Week, which is a public awareness campaign about collections preservation.

Libraries across the U.S. will provide information and expertise on how to preserve collectables, photos, family records and other valuable materials.

“Libraries offer more than just books, they also are an excellent resource for high-quality information and expertise on how to preserve family keepsakes,” said ALA President Camila Alire. “Preserving items such as old photographs, letters, collectables and family movies, provides a map of the past and access to a full range of information that can impact the future.”

The Preservation Week Web site ( provides excellent resources, tracks programs across the country, enables people to share their stories, and provides information on a wide variety of preservation issues.
