Welcome to the blogospherical home of the Parks Library Preservation Department at Iowa State University (ISU).  We’re still ironing out the logistical wrinkles of starting up a collaborative blog, but within the next month, we will begin posting about preservation-related events at ISU, new and ongoing projects with the Special Collections Department, and a range of  general preservation topics that includes preservation administration and education, library and archives conservation, digital initiatives, and commercial binding.
