The mission of the E. Lingle Craig Preservation Lab is to facilitate the use of information resources for as long as they are needed, and in the forms most appropriate for their effective use. In the IU Bloomington Libraries, where permanent retention is the goal, the role of the Preservation Lab is to stabilize and improve the condition of the book and paper collections, ensuring that they are accessible for use by both present and future researchers. This means protecting the collections from avoidable damage and deterioration, repairing materials when they become worn from use, and replacing or copying materials that cannot be repaired.
