Use Of General Preservation Assessments: Outputs, Karen E.K. Brown Jan 2006

Use Of General Preservation Assessments: Outputs, Karen E.K. Brown

University Libraries Faculty Scholarship

This study describes the extent to which institutions implement preservation recommendations resulting from a general needs assessment, including the time to implementation and the extent of program development. Most recommendations are preventive, with less emphasis on repair or reformatting activities. Data indicate that the majority of institutions accomplish recommended preservation actions with no neglected subject areas. Institutions with the highest rates of success spent more staff time preparing for the site visit, and had a longer site visit, compared to the population as a whole. Preparation of a preservation plan does not correlate to an enhanced capacity to implement preservation ...

Use Of General Preservation Assessments: Process, Karen E.K. Brown

The findings of this study suggest that assessment reports are thorough and organized; report content is consistent across the population studied. The ...

Rock Art In Malaysia, Paul Faulstich Apr 1985

Rock Art In Malaysia, Paul Faulstich

Pitzer Faculty Publications and Research

Very little is known to the scientific world on the rock art of Malaysia. It might therefore be worthwhile on a site in the state of Perak, just outside of the town of Ipoh. The rock is limestone, and there is a quarry about 1/8 of a mile down the hill from the paintings. Flaking of the cliff wall and the limestone excretions have badly damaged the paintings; rain also falls directly on the paintings. As far as we know, the site has never been adequately documented.
