National Digital Library Program and the Conservation Division:
Conservation Implications of Digitization Projects

This paper was written by a group of Library of Congress conservators who have worked closely with NDLP digitization projects and NDLP project leaders since the beginning of the program in 1995. The multi-faceted and precedent setting role which conservation plays in digital image conversion projects in the NDLP in the areas of consultation, training, and treatment for scanning is discussed. Additional information will be added in the coming months which will provide details regarding experience with specific collections.
