LAPNet was established in January 1987 to meet the preservation needs of librarians, conservators, archivists and records managers in Los Angeles City and County. It is managed by a Steering Committee drawn from libraries and other record repositories. LAPNet aims to serve as a forum of information exchange and foster the development of preservation and cooperative programs among all the libraries in the area, irrespective of their type or size.
