Collection Preservation at the Indiana State Library – 1 LEU

Seth IrwinThe Indiana State Library holds collections that are significant and important to both the history of Indiana and also the United States.  The Library’s holdings consist of a wide variety of different materials, such as maps, documents, photographs, books, paintings, and fine art.  Caring for these collections is what the ISL Preservation Division is tasked with, both preventing damage from happening and repairing damage when it happens.  This talk will focus on both an introduction to the field of Art Conservation and the work of the Indiana State Library Preservation Program.

Deweyless, No Regrets: Living without Dewey – 1 LEU

Melvil DeweyThe Wells County Public Library has survived 2 years without Dewey and no regrets! What started out as a project about changing numbers to words, became a whole new way of organizing, classifying, labeling and thinking about the library’s entire collection. The decision to ditch Dewey took much longer than the actual process of developing a new classification system and relabeling more than 85,000 items. Stephanie Davis, Director of the Wells County Public Library will share their experience.
