Topics in Preservation Series (TOPS)
This ongoing lecture series brings speakers to the Library to share their experience and current research. The lectures occur during business hours, are open to the public, and most are available live via webcast and later as on-demand streaming.
At the Library's preservation symposia and conferences, experts from the field gather to discuss specific issues, such as preservation and access, preservation and conservation science, and preservation education priorities.
The Library offers basic preservation workshops for the public (every year during National Preservation Week in April) and emergency management workshops for library professionals.
