Abstract: The Film Preservation Guide: The Basics for Archives, Libraries, and Museums presents a hands-on introduction to the art and science of film preservation while offering a sidelong glimpse of selected projects funded by the National Film Preservation Foundation (NFPF). Though a slender volume (freely downloadable at http://www.filmpreservation.org/preservation/film%5Fguide.html), the guide actually goes beyond the basics. It also provides advice on how to customize projects according to individual repository goals and budgets, and more significantly, how to create a sustainable film preservation program.
