Training Program for Internship Trainees from Indonesia

In response to a request from the Indonesian Center for Agricultural Library and Technology Dissemination (ICALTD), the NDL accepted eight staff members as internship trainees as a cooperative activity of IFLA PAC from September 30 to October 4, 2013. The IFLA PAC Regional Centre for Asia provided a basic training program for preservation and conservation. The program consisted of lectures on the basic theory of preservation and preventive conservation measures for various types of library materials, a workshop on making protective enclosures, and visits to libraries to see various ways of collection care.

Fruits of Our Training Program

In May 2014, we received news from the ICALTD that they had newly established the Preservation and Conservation Laboratory for their rare and old books collection and that one of the trainees had been appointed chief of the lab. Staff members deal with conservation work and digitization of the collection, as well as translation from Dutch to Indonesian. We are glad to hear that our training program was helpful for them to start their lab.
