The Association for Library Collections & Technical Services (ALCTS), a
division of the American Library Association (ALA), will offer three
preconferences at the ALA Annual Conference in Chicago.  The registration
deadline is June 7.

"Treasures in the Stacks: Preserving Publishers Bindings, 1830-1910"
presented by the ALCTS Preservation and Reformatting Section, Program,
Planning, and Publications Committee, will be held on Friday, July 7, 2000,
from 8:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

The program is designed for librarians working in preservation,
collection management and special collections.  Speakers will address
what makes a book unique and why it should be preserved, along with
selection criteria, current research on bindings and treatment options.
