About the Lecture:
The International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA) Core Activity on Preservation and Conservation (PAC) was officially created during the IFLA annual conference in Nairobi in 1984 to focus efforts on issues of preservation and initiate worldwide cooperation for the preservation of library materials. Learn about the evolution of PAC activities and of the PAC network -- which are linked to the development of preservation -- through a discussion of the themes tackled by PAC at IFLA conferences and workshops and through the IFLA-PAC publication, International Preservation News (IPN).

This event, co-sponsored by FEDLINK, a division of the Library of Congress, is one of a number of activities held at the Library in celebration of National Preservation Week: Pass It On (April 21-27, 2013) to share preservation strategies that help people care for their personal materials—and thereby pass them on.
