Collection Assessment
Preservation issues are entwined in many aspects of library services and operations. As a whole, the staff of SULAIR's Preservation Department holds an indepth knowledge on a wide range of topics which are immediately relevant to the services offered and the materials made available to the Stanford community by other SULAIR units and programs. We offer collection assessment and consultation services to our colleagues who have questions, no matter how general or specific, about library and archives materials and their preservation.

Bulk collections and individual items alike may be reviewed by Preservation staff. We will conduct collection assessments prior to the acquisition of the materials, upon their acquisition and as they are processed, or when they are being reclassified to become part of another SULAIR collection. We also consult on special projects involving preservation matters, such as grant-funded projects and initiatives.

Please contact Laura Cameron, Head of Binding & Finishing, for questions related to the assessment of paper-based materials in the general collections. In the case of bulk collections of printed materials, see also the SULAIR Bulk Collections Policy and Procedures.

For questions related to the assessment of paper-based special collections materials, please contact Maria Grandinette, Head of Conservation & Book Repair.

For questions related to the assessment of media materials, please contact Maria Grandinette, Interim Head of Media Preservation.
