Film Preservation Manual

Chris Cagle over at Category D recently posted information about a film -- as in 16mm, 35mm, etc. -- preservation manual he found online. For me, this is perfect timing. Just this week some librarians at Virginia Tech asked Stephen Prince and me to look at our 16mm collection to assess what should be kept and what should be thrown out. The guide, authored by the University of Washington, is clearly geared to librarians (one chapter title: "I Found Motion Picture Film in My Collection -- Now What?"), but it's a useful (and free!) resource for anyone that has (or has access to) film prints.
