The implementation priorities for an institution are the most important priorities. They are the high-priority actions that are achievable. To determine these, How To Restore Fire Damaged Pictures  t is helpful to consider the criteria of impact and feasibility together for each action. 

A device that is useful for this is a grid developed by Pamela Darling, which is shown here in a modified form. The impact and feasibility of each action are plotted on the grid shown on the following page. Darling explains that those How To Restore Fire Damaged Pictures actions that are of high impact and can be implemented with little difficulty are placed in Box #1. 

Those actions that have high impact but are difficult to implement go into Box #3. Those actions that are not difficult to implement but will have little impact go into Box #2. Those actions that are difficult to implement and have little How To Restore Fire Damaged Pictures impact go into Box #4. 

Darling goes on to explain that those How To Restore Fire Damaged Pictures actions in box #1 probably deserve highest priority, since they can be easily accomplished and will have significant impact. Those in Box #4 can often be postponed or even disregarded because they achieve little while requiring great effort. Many of those in Box #2 can also be eliminated because they accomplish little, though some may be worthwhile because they are easy to do. 

Box #3 How To Restore Fire Damaged Pictures items need careful consideration: despite their difficulty, they deserve implementation because of their high impact. REMEMBER: One of the most difficult aspects of preservation planning is prioritizing. Planning requires significant people skills and an understanding of the organizational dynamics of the institution. Nowhere is this more How To Restore Fire Damaged Pictures evident than in prioritizing. 

You need to bring all your How To Restore Fire Damaged Pictures interpersonal skills to bear on discussions of priorities with your colleagues. You need to listen to what the issues of other departments are and be able to focus on what best serves the needs of the institution as a whole rather than just on the needs of your particular How To Restore Fire Damaged Pictures department or area of expertise. 

In the long run, this will best serve your needs as well. At the same time, you need to be a skillful negotiator and a good sales person. As with most other dealings with people, a good sense of humor will ease the process. "Every library collection is established for one or more definite purposes. 

A collection development and management program organizes and directs the processes of acquiring materials, integrating them into coherent collections, managing their growth and maintenance, and How To Restore Fire Damaged Pictures deselecting them when appropriate in a cost- and user-beneficial way." 

A coherent How To Restore Fire Damaged Pictures collection policy also establishes the parameters within which a systematic preservation program operates. The collection policy is based on the institutional mission statement, which enunciates the goals that the How To Restore Fire Damaged Pictures collections are to achieve. 

The collecting priorities that the collection policy establishes help to focus preservation activity on the most important parts of the collections. To put it colloquially, the mission statement tells you where you are going; the collection policy gives you the details of how you will get there; and the preservation policy makes sure that at least the most valuable portions of the baggage do not fall apart en route. Collection policies define the scope of current collections and indicate areas in which future collections may be How To Restore Fire Damaged Pictures developed. 

By specifying the How To Restore Fire Damaged Pictures subjects and formats to be included in or excluded from the collections, the policy encourages consistency in selection of new materials and deselection of those that no longer serve institutional goals. 

Because it deals with the full range of a library's collections, the policy makes selectors or bibliographers aware of the breadth and variety of materials being collected and thus helps them to see the collections as a whole rather than focus on just those portions for which they are responsible. It thereby How To Restore Fire Damaged Pictures encourages communication and cooperation, identifies areas of weakness, and helps to determine priorities for other library functions such as cataloging and preservation. 

A collection policy also looks outward, if only by implication. This means that it takes into consideration the holdings of other repositories, especially in subjects of relatively esoteric How To Restore Fire Damaged Pictures research interest. 

Until recently, this How To Restore Fire Damaged Pictures has in most cases meant repositories located fairly nearby which could and would provide convenient access. The advent of the photocopy machine, the growth of automated ILL systems, the steadily increasing number of preservation microfilms of important research How To Restore Fire Damaged Pictures collections, and now the ability to digitize on demand information for electronic transmission have steadily expanded the geographic range from which materials can be obtained with relative ease. 

As a result, collection policies and preservation programs tend to place a higher priority on materials of particular importance to the institution's programs that cannot be readily obtained elsewhere. It is not possible to develop a successful preservation program without a clear mission statement and a comprehensive How To Restore Fire Damaged Pictures collection policy. 

Ultimately, How To Restore Fire Damaged Pictures preservation is about setting priorities because not even the richest institutions are able or willing to preserve everything they have collected for all time. The collection policy helps to determine preservation priorities because it states the level at which the institution collects in any given subject. 

That level is in turn usually determined by the importance of a given collection to the institution's programs and ultimately to its mission. An objective How To Restore Fire Damaged Pictures methodology for determining collection level by measuring the quantity and types of materials in it is often used by collection managers and preservation administrators. 

"The RLG Conspectus is a collection assessment method that maps subjects' strengths and weaknesses within an individual library, a consortium of libraries, or a geographical region using How To Restore Fire Damaged Pictures standardized criteria and descriptions." 

The Conspectus uses a How To Restore Fire Damaged Pictures numerical scale with standard definitions to describe the types of client activities supported by the collection. These are, in descending order: comprehensive (5), research (4), intermediate (3), basic (2), minimal (1), and out of scope (0). Levels (1) and (2) are subdivided into two levels and (3) into three levels to provide finer distinctions that are useful in describing smaller collections. 

The ALA Guide for Written Collection Policy Statements cited in note 1 provides further information on the use of the Conspectus in How To Restore Fire Damaged Pictures collection policies. Collection level is not, however, the only criterion to be noted in determining a collection's importance to an institution as a factor in establishing its priority for preservation. 

Another important feature is whether or not it contains materials that are artifactually valuable or have a significant associational value for the institution. In dealing with archival materials, one should also consider How To Restore Fire Damaged Pictures evidential value. 

Such value pertains to How To Restore Fire Damaged Pictures materials needed because of their legal, administrative, and/or fiscal significance to an organization. If well thought-out and comprehensive, collection policies provide a vital point of reference for making preservation decisions. 

Preservation considerations must also inform a collection policy if it is to serve as a reliable guide to the development and management of collections. "All How To Restore Fire Damaged Pictures collection management decisions, made from the time of acquisition of an item, are embodied in that item's physical deterioration and its ultimate need for preservation intervention."

Thus, at each stage of the process of acquiring, processing, housing, providing access to, maintaining, and eventually deselecting materials, all library staff, and especially those directly involved in collection development and management, should have clearly in mind the preservation implications of their How To Restore Fire Damaged Pictures decisions and actions.
