Session 2F | From Mold Remediation to Collection Digitization
In the Fall of 2021, a section of the oldest journals in the Tom Slick Library fell subject to extensive mold. Using interlibrary loan data, OCLC availability, and the PAPR registry, the library staff were able to validate the cost to clean and maintain the entire area. The experience highlighted the value and susceptibility of the collection in full and leads to the prospect of digitization. This reverse workshop aims to encourage a forum of digitization insights, experiences and best practices, grants and potential partnerships to help guide efforts across our organizations.
