In 2004 and 2005, a live version of this course (in workshop format) was taught in the Pacific Northwest. In the first half of 2006, the Northeast Document Conservation Center and their Web production and e-learning consultant, WGBH Educational Foundation in Boston, Massachusetts, produced this online version of the course.
The content for Preservation 101 was written by Beth Patkus, Preservation Consultant, and reviewed and edited by Lori Foley, Director of Field Service at NEDCC. An earlier version of Preservation 101 (created for NEDCC by Karen E.K. Brown, with assistance from Beth Patkus and Julie Reilly in 2001) served as the starting point for this course. NEDCC would also like to acknowledge the important contributions of grant partners (including NCPTT) and current and former NEDCC staff to the content of this course.

The original product 1999-30 provided a first step toward the course that is available online as of 2012. The PDF document available on our website reflects the product’s original form as made available to NCPTT in 1999. The online course has been significantly updated and enhanced through additional grant funding and partnerships.
This course was made possible through Grant MT-2210-9-NC-25 from the National Center for Preservation Technology and Training (NCPTT).
