The PI Institute is a new series of annual workshops designed to address
the continuing education needs of preservation and conservation

Preservation administrators, faculty of schools of library and
information science, curators, archivists, record managers,
conservators, and librarians who manage preservation activities are
encouraged to attend.

This year's program, hosted by the University of Pittsburgh, will
include the following courses:

Preservation of Electronic Formats: Dr. Michael Spring, Department of
  Information Science, University of Pittsburgh, will consider the
  preservation of electronic media, and implications of its selection,
  use, and management.  Preservation challenges, physical formats,
  ethics, and access will also be discussed.

Bookbinding and the Arts and Crafts Movement: Dr. Marianne Tidcombe,
  author and distinguished historian of late nineteenth and early
  twentieth century binders, will address the work of T.J. Cobden-
  Sanderson, his students, and the Doves Bindery, examining their
  influence on design and structure of later binderies.

Science Serving Preservation: Dr. Jan Lyall, Acting Director of the
  Preservation Office, National Library of Australia, will offer an
  in-depth look at recent scientific research affecting preservation and
  conservation.  This course will discuss guidelines for interpreting
  scientific data.

Tuition for the PI Institute is $300.  Housing is available at a group
rate ($69/night) at a nearby hotel.  Inexpensive dormitory rooms are
also available ($26/night single, $32/night double).
