    Just a friendly reminder that we will be meeting as an Interest Group during the Core Interest Group week on Thursday, March 9th from 2pm-3pm (Central Time).

    The Preservation Administrator's Interest Group will be meeting to discuss the results of the ALA-Core Library Binding Survey (15 minutes). The results of the Core Board meeting vote will also be discussed (discussion will depend heavily upon the outcome of the vote). After the meeting, there will be a discussion about library binding and further details of the binding survey.
