Speaker: Allyson Donahoe, Preservation Review Librarian, Harvard University
Speaker: Emily Holmes, Assistant Director, Preservation Reformatting, Columbia University Libraries
Speaker: Kara McClurken

The brittle program landscape has changed with the growing acceptance of digital surrogates as replacements for the printed book and the increasing scarcity of microfilming programs. Different options are available to Preservation Librarians managing brittle book programs today than were available ten years ago. This panel discussion will facilitate the discussion of best practices, workflow tools, and decision making criteria used by Preservation Librarians at academic institutions.
