The Preservation Bibliography - Books

These are excellent monographs to help you get started or to enhance your preservation activities. They cover topics ranging from preservation management and collection care, book repair, constructing boxes, care of photographs, and disaster planning. Some of these items are older and out of date, but the information is still pertinent. Find them through your Inter-Library Loan program before you purchase. We hope these items will help you on your way to develop a great program for your library. I have linked the titles with Amazon.com and other book sellers to help you on your way.
