Past performance example for archiving and preservation

National Library of Education (NLE)

LAC Federal supported the NLE’s efforts to ensure the Library’s special collection of rare books and manuscripts pertaining to the history of education was accessible to researchers. Our staff included a rare books cataloger and a preservation consultant as needed. Working with NLE staff, we developed a plan to process more than 25,000 rare materials from the 1600s to the 1900s, making the Library’s historical textbooks discoverable to scholars around the world.

Smithsonian Institution Libraries (SIL)

The foreign language materials in the SIL collections, including those in non-Roman scripts, must be properly cataloged to ensure these items are accessible and properly preserved. LAC couples foreign language catalogers and information science credentials to support these efforts. We maintain an active network of information professionals capable of cataloging for preservation monographs, serials, multimedia and rare books in over 15 languages, including Farsi, Turkish, Chinese, Russian, Japanese, Greek, Swahili and Polish.
