  • The program of preservation and collection maintenance at Cornell University is concerned with the physical conservation treatment, reformatting, media, and safe handling of the collection. All these operations are closely related, and some cross-training of staff enables a more flexible response. The collection maintenance staff must shelve and move large numbers of books every day, and participate in a massive program of moving materials to remote storage at the University's remote storage facilities.
