Nel periodo di durata complessiva del progetto, previsto in 24 mesi, agli operatori selezionati e partecipanti sarà corrisposta una borsa di studio di euro 10.000,00 cadauno, in due tranches, nelle fasi iniziali del corso di perfezionamento e del secondo anno di progetto.

L’aggiornamento professionale di cui sopra sarà a cura del personale docente e degli assistenti tecnici dell’Istituto Centrale per il Restauro e la Conservazione del Patrimonio Archivistico e Librario (ICRCPAL), sotto la supervisione del Direttore scientifico del Progetto REPAQ

(AGI) - Baghdad, 6 set. - L'Italia intensifica il suo impegno per la protezione del patrimonio culturale dell'Iraq, dove la Cooperazione italiana sta mettendo a punto gli ultimi dettagli per un programma di corsi avanzati sulla conservazione di libri, manoscritti, archivi e tavolette fittili cuneiformi.
L'iniziativa, partita nel 2012 a Erbil, nel Kurdistan iracheno, verra' guidata dall'Istituto per la conservazione e il restauro e rientra nel progetto "Assistenza tecnica per la riabilitazione e la gestione del patrimonio culturale iracheno", avviato la scorsa primavera con una copertura finanziaria di 2 milioni di euro. Il programma punta a fornire ai funzionari del board per le antichita' e il patrimonio iracheno una formazione specialistica su alcuni temi di conservazione e di restauro di materiali e monumenti archeologici. Alla fine di agosto, la task force italiana impegnata nel piano ha concluso un corso sul restauro degli avori antichi e l'ufficio consolare dell'ambasciata d'Italia a Baghdad ha premiato gli studenti migliori. Le autorita' governative locali - riferiscono fonti diplomatiche - hanno espresso soddisfazione per il progetto e confidano in ulteriori azioni nel settore scientifico e culturale. (AGI) .

Edenworkshops newsletter

Edenworkshops newsletter: "I have been feverish with activity these past few weeks. Last month I explained that I wanted to write about Longstitch binding, in fact the subject has proven very absorbing. Little has been written on the subject and I have had to conduct my own research which has been time consuming.

Named for the long stitches visible on the spine, the Longstitch binding, which involves sewing directly through the covering material, is an ancient bookbinding method that has become popular in Europe and America since the 1980’s, though it must be said that this style of binding has never died out completely."

ALA | Book Repair Basics for Libraries

ALA | Book Repair Basics for Libraries: Book Repair Basics for Libraries

Participants will become familiar with several types of basic repairs for bound circulating collections materials in school, public, and academic libraries. Tip-ins and basic page repairs, hinge tightening, and a variety of spine repairs will be covered. Techniques will be illustrated and demonstrated with text, images, and video. Links to other resources will be provided.

Repairs and conservation treatments on rare and special collections materials will NOT be discussed.
Who Should Attend?
Individuals with little (some preferred) book repair experience will benefit. More experienced attendees will receive helpful hints.
Course Level & Prerequisites

Peter D. Verheyen is Head of Preservation and Conservation at Syracuse University. After beginning as work-study in preservation under John Dean at Johns Hopkins where he repaired and rehoused circulating collections, he studied binding and conservation in Germany and Switzerland to become a rare book conservator working in private practice and research library preservation programs. He established the conservation lab at Syracuse for the treatment of special collections materials, and developed a high-density system for storing architectural drawings. In response to a need for efficient rehousing in anticipation of off-site storage he introduced Syracuse to the shrink-wrapping of volumes. He presented Archival 101 as an ALCTS webinar during Preservation Week 2010.

Marianne Hanley is Assistant Conservator in the Department of Preservation and Conservation at Syracuse University Library. Her responsibilities include managing the repair and rehousing of our circulating collections, including the training of work-study students. In addition she is training in bookbinding and aspects of book conservation with conservators David Stokoe and Peter Verheyen. She also presents regularly on disaster preparedness as part of departmental staff training and outreach activities. Because Marianne has worked in both the public and private sectors of libraries, she is collaborating in the development of a basic book repair program that will benefit many different institutions and varying types of skill levels.
