The master page for this tremendous and carefully selected world of information resources.
Preservation of materials and microfilming to preserve materials is a very important area of library science. There is for example a discussion group of library preservation administrators that is operated under the auspicies of the
American Library Association:
ALCTS PARS Preservation Administration Discussion Group
Information on how to join this group is given on the page linked above. To find many more potentially helpful websites and groups in this area, including sources of grant money for such a project, I recommend several searches in the Google search engine, each done without the quotation marks. Once you have established from this search some good leads to key library collections and groups focused on preservation, make contact by telephone or email and see if at one of these organizations, you can get that institution interested in your materials and their preservation.
