Dr. France will provide a broad overview of the research at the Library of Congress in the preservation of collections of audio-visual, magnetic tape, optical disks, fugitive media and blueprints. She will describe their current testing of CDs and DVDs as these deterioration issues are of interest across all types of libraries. Dr. France will describe the matrix she has been developing for recommending what libraries can do to prioritize preservation attention to their collections of modern twentieth century materials, often thought to be a lower risk of loss due to their age, compared to historic traditional material counterparts.
