The Milton S. Eisenhower Library of The Johns Hopkins University with
funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities will be offering
ten hands-on workshops each year in basic and advanced preservation
techniques.  The workshops will commence June, 1993 and conclude
February, 1996.

The purpose of the workshops is to offer training opportunities to staff
employed in mid-sized and smaller libraries, archives, and historical
and genealogical societies that have established a commitment to
preserving their collections.  Applications from preservation
practitioners whose responsibilities include hands-on care and treatment
of their institution's general collections will receive preferential

Workshop titles (and the number of offerings each year) are:  Basic
Workshop (3), Advanced Enclosures (2), Advanced Book Repair (2),
Treatment of Older Collections (1), Disaster Recovery (1) and Exhibits
Preparation (1).

These workshops continue and expand on the successful preservation
training at Johns Hopkins.  Early inquiries are recommended.  To request
