Discussions will also cover proper care and handling practices, stack maintenance, staff and user education, and library binding.  It will be presented in three 2 hour sessions; on April 4, April 11, and April 18.  This class is funded in part by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) Division of  Preservation and Access.
