Field Trip to Iowa State University, Ames, Iowa May 2002

On May 30th, 2002, the UI Preservation Department headed west to Ames, Iowa, to visit its counterpart at Iowa State University. The day’s events provided an opportunity to tour ISU’s Preservation Department including the Collections Conservation, Binding, and Preservation Reformatting Sections.

The visit was the first in a series to establish a collaborative effort between the UI and ISU Preservation Departments. Future collaboration will include the development and streamlining of Preservation Imaging workflow utilizing the Minolta PS7000 top-down scanner in conjunction with the PPP (Precise Page Positioning) software.
