(6 August 2015) IFLA is pleased to announce the creation of a new Preservation and Conservation (PAC) Centre with expertise in tropical climates and pest management. The new PAC Centre is based at the National Library and Documentation Service Board of Sri Lanka. The agreement with IFLA was signed yesterday , 5 August during its 25th anniversary conference.
The Governing Board of IFLA endorsed the creation of the PAC Centre at its April 2015 meeting. The PAC Centre clearly fills gaps identified during the review of the PAC Centres and the PAC Strategic Programme which took place in 2014.
The new PAC Centre will be able to assist the region as well as other regions in need with issues around tropical climates and pest control, and will organise workshops and training around these topics.
The announcement is here.
