Origin

PARS was formed in 1994 merging RLMS (Reproduction of Library Materials Section) and PLMS (Preservation of Library Materials Section). The strength of PARS lies the diverse yet collaborative skills that are the focal point of preservation. The section is concerned with issues that range from fine binding to digital preservation. The members in the section are excellent communicators and are keen on networking and mentoring each other.

ALCTS values committed and active members. Qualified members interested in serving on the Executive Committee should contact the current Chair.
