Internship at Cornell

From: Barbara Berger <bebx>
Date: Tuesday, July 30, 1991
Six Month Internship in Preservation  and Conservation  Available.

     Cornell University Library has been funded by the Andrew W. Mellon
Foundation to undertake a three year program of consultancy, technical
training, and education.

     The program is intended to serve all types of libraries and staff
through the provision of technical and professional resources. In
addition to offering three workshops and three consultancies per year,
the Cornell University Library Department of Preservation and
Conservation will provide a valuable and stimulating environment for
technical and professional training through internship.  One internship
of six months for each of three years is available to staff from
institutions dedicated to the establishment and maintenance of
preservation programs.  Under the general supervision of the Director of
the Department, the intern will work in each of the seven
preservation/conservation units, will carry out a substantial
preservation project, attend staff and other pertinent meetings, and
participate in workshops and other training programs. The exact nature
and schedule of training is designed to accommodate individual and
institutional needs, and takes into account prior experience and
training.  No fee or tuition is required, and a stipend of no less for
$13,000 for the six moth period is available.

     The Andrew W. Mellon grant has enabled the University to share its
facilities and expertise with other institutions at little or no cost to
them.  In combination with other national, state, regional, and local
efforts, the program will help to save irreplaceable library and archive
materials from damage and deterioration.

     Enquiries about the program should be directed to:
