Preservation guides will assist on pix

$165,000 Mellon grant will go toward publications

WASHINGTON — The National Film Preservation Foundation will publish two layman’s guides on how librarians and museums can preserve old films.

The foundation will use a $165,000 grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to publish the “Film Preservation Guide” and the “Media Storage Quick Reference” in December 2003.

“Scores of museums, universities, historical societies and libraries have historically significant films but little information on how to care for them,” said Council on Library and Information Resources director of programs Abby Smith.

The preservations guides will be developed by such experts as retired Librarian of Congress motion picture division chief David Francis and Rochester Institute of Technology’s Image Permanence Institute director Jim Reilly. Guides will be tested by the L. Jeffrey Selznick School of Film Preservation at the George Eastman House.

They will be available via the Internet and through the Council on Library and Information Resources.

The NFPF is a non-profit org and a charitable affiliate of the Library of Congress’ National Film Preservation Board.
