Friday Program
Once the decision has been made to purchase a library score, several more decisions will need to be made over the course of its working life: how to bind it, whether and how to repair it if it is damaged, and how to replace it once that becomes necessary. Different libraries will make different decisions for individual volumes depending on mission and circumstances, but the decision making process can be largely automated. In this workshop, we will walk through decision points so that individual attendees can build decision trees that fit their particular library.
