Talk on conservation

From: Daniel Traister <traister>
Date: Wednesday, January 15, 1992
On February 5th, the Friends of the Library of the University of
Pennsylvania have scheduled a speaker who should interest both
conservation/preservation and rare book and manuscript people (all of
whom are welcome--need I add *gratis*? --to attend this event if they
are in the neighborhood and able to do so).

Specifically:  Jan Paris (Conservator, University of North Carolina at
Chapel Hill) repeats a talk on "Ethics to Engineering:  Conservation of
Special Collections Materials" originally presented last summer to the
Rare Books and Manuscripts Section/ACRL/ALA annual meeting in Chapel
Hill/Durham. Her case study concerns the *Pinkes*, a manuscript
containing several centuries of records for a Jewish community in
Lithuania wiped out during the Shoah, now held at YIVO, on which Ms.
Paris worked before she went to UNC- Chapel Hill.  Ms. Paris speaks as a
conservator but talks as well (briefly) about the contents of the

This talk will be presented on the sixth floor of Van Pelt-Dietrich
Library Center (3420 Walnut Street, Philadelphia).  The Library is
entered from Locust Walk (south of Walnut Street) and its entrance is
marked by an unmistakable Claes Oldenburg statue of a broken button. The
elevators to the Lessing J. Rosenwald Gallery on the 6th floor are
directly inside the front door.  There will be a reception at 5 P.M.;
Ms. Paris' talk will begin at 5:30.
