Document restoration >> How To Restore Smoke Damaged Archive Photos

If the repository chooses not to use one of the tools cited above, these following questions will help to establish the enduring research or How To Restore Smoke Damaged Archive Photos educational value of a collection or a publication in terms of institutional priorities and the overall documentation available on the topic covered: 

1. What is the importance of the topic documented by this collection or this publication? Is its primary How To Restore Smoke Damaged Archive Photos significance local, statewide, regional, national, or international? 

2. How does this collection or this publication relate to other holdings at your repository that document the same topic? 

3. How does it relate to materials on the same topic held by other repositories? 

4. Is the information it contains unique or does it duplicate information contained in records, publications, or other sources held by other repositories? 

5. Is the repository committed to continuing to document this How To Restore Smoke Damaged Archive Photos topic? 

6. Why would it be better to spend How To Restore Smoke Damaged Archive Photos funds on the preservation of this material than to acquire new material? 

7. What impact would the destruction of this material have on the documentation and understanding of the topic? 

In going through this process, it is helpful to recognize that for most repositories, the great majority of their holdings are not of enduring value. These holdings are, however, of current How To Restore Smoke Damaged Archive Photos interest and should therefore be protected against deterioration and damage so that they can be used for as long as possible. 

The evaluator should also establish whether or not the collection or item has intrinsic value by determining its artifactual, monetary, associational, or symbolic value. Intrinsic value will affect priority for preservation. 

It will often also determine whether or not it is acceptable to reformat materials or to choose among the appropriate conservation How To Restore Smoke Damaged Archive Photos treatments. 

AVAILABLE RESOURCES 

The How To Restore Smoke Damaged Archive Photos information gathered on the condition of the collections, environmental conditions, other factors related to their housing, and estimates of their value all eventually have to be weighed against the resources that can be mobilized by the How To Restore Smoke Damaged Archive Photos institution and the technical abilities of the staff available to address the needs identified. 

At this point the planning process moves into the realm of practice and must identify those actions that it may actually be possible to undertake. Planners should be aware that some initiatives that will contribute significantly to extending the life of collections can be undertaken without adding new budget lines or substantially increasing existing How To Restore Smoke Damaged Archive Photos ones. 

For example, training staff and users in care and handling, revising the binding contract to follow How To Restore Smoke Damaged Archive Photos recommendations of the Library Binding Institute Standard for Library Binding, carrying out systematic holdings and stack maintenance, preparing a disaster plan, following preservation criteria when buying storage furniture and supplies, working with plant managers to stabilize temperature and humidity, and incorporating preservation considerations into all policies and procedures can often be accomplished with existing personnel and budget allocations. 

This is not a comprehensive list, but a sample of improvements that can be achieved by changing existing practice to respect preservation concerns. In contrast, budget increases are usually required for such options as replacing significant quantities of storage How To Restore Smoke Damaged Archive Photos furniture or preservation enclosures, upgrading poor environmental conditions by renovating a building or installing a new climate control system, setting up a systematic reformatting program, and providing conservation treatment either in-house or on How To Restore Smoke Damaged Archive Photos contract. 

Moreover, the last three How To Restore Smoke Damaged Archive Photos activities demand a level of staff expertise in preservation management and conservation issues over and beyond that which can be obtained from a workshop or other short training course, even if the work is ultimately contracted out. 

Any planning process must take into account the political environment within which the program it hopes to implement will be carried out. It is therefore necessary to be as alert to possible political obstacles as to technical deficiencies or lack of How To Restore Smoke Damaged Archive Photos resources. 

Much of the success of a preservation program will depend on the willingness of the repository's administration to support the changes recommended. That support should be clearly evident from the start of the planning process and should be continually nourished by regular reports on progress and checks that emerging How To Restore Smoke Damaged Archive Photos recommendations will be approved. 

It is also important to make sure on a How To Restore Smoke Damaged Archive Photos continuing basis that at least some of the resources that will be needed, be it staff time or the ability to redirect certain budget lines or even new money, will be forthcoming. This may mean keeping senior or parent institution administrators involved in and supportive of the process. 

Much also depends on the cooperation of other staff in the repository. To the greatest extent How To Restore Smoke Damaged Archive Photos possible, planning should forestall turf wars by involving all staff whose functions may eventually be affected and convincing them of the importance of any changes recommended. 

Similarly, parts of an effective preservation program may necessitate working with staff outside the repository such as building managers or plant engineers. Again, it is important to educate them about the importance of upgrading building systems or making repairs to the survival of the How To Restore Smoke Damaged Archive Photos Collections. 

In all instances, it is wise to come armed with reliable How To Restore Smoke Damaged Archive Photos data about the effects of failing to change, including if possible the dollar costs of remedying damage and deterioration, as well as solid estimates of the costs of the changes being sought. 

It is also wise to present the program as a series of goals to be accomplished in stages so that each problem is clearly defined rather than limitless, and so that the various resources needed can be sought over a period of several years or stages. 

Preventive How To Restore Smoke Damaged Archive Photos Preservation In the move from collecting information and planning for a preservation program to setting priorities and implementation, it is helpful to keep in mind that an administrator's first responsibility is to ensure the longest possible useful life for the entire collection. This is true if for no other reason than to protect the institution's capital investment in those How To Restore Smoke Damaged Archive Photos materials. 

It is also important to recognize that the most How To Restore Smoke Damaged Archive Photos cost-effective method of extending longevity is to prevent deterioration to the greatest extent possible. Preventive preservation plays much the same role with respect to library and archival How To Restore Smoke Damaged Archive Photos materials as do public health and preventive medicine for people. 

Most of the activities that can be grouped under the heading of preventive preservation are things that the institution does normally: acquisitions, binding, processing non-print materials, shelving, circulation, cleaning both library facilities and the collections, photocopying, minor repair, How To Restore Smoke Damaged Archive Photos and deaccessioning. 

However, as components in an How To Restore Smoke Damaged Archive Photos integrated preservation program, they will now be done with a new awareness of their effect on the long-term survival of the collections and in accordance with current preservation standards and guidelines. Thus, a preventive preservation program should not be viewed as an add-on but rather as an integral component of the day-to-day operations and responsibilities of the How To Restore Smoke Damaged Archive Photos repository.
