ALCTS e-Forum: Core Competencies for Preservation Professionals
April 14-15, 2020
Moderated by Beth Doyle, Martha Horan, and Ian Bogus
Please join us for an e-forum discussion. It’s free and open to everyone!
Registration information is at the end of the message.
Each day, discussion begins and ends at:
Pacific: 7 a.m. – 3 p.m.
Mountain: 8 a.m. – 4 p.m.
Central: 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.
Eastern: 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.
Just as the preservation profession has evolved, the range of skills needed
to perform preservation, conservation, and overall preservation management
functions have expanded. This e-Forum will initiate a profession-wide
conversation to articulate the core competencies of the contemporary
preservation professional. As preservation programming is a continued
strategic investment, this discussion will provide insight to individuals
exploring preservation as a profession and to administrators considering
hiring a preservation professional.

What Is an e-Forum?
An ALCTS e-forum provides an opportunity for librarians to discuss matters
of interest, led by a moderator, through the e-forum discussion list. The
e-forum discussion list works like an email listserv: register your email
address with the list, and then you will receive messages and communicate
with other participants through an email discussion. Most e-forums last two
to three days. Registration is necessary to participate, but it's free.
