                  The Preservation Intensive Institute

                      An NEH Supported Opportunity
                       for Advanced Education in
                   Library and Archival Preservation

                            August 1-6, 1993

Participants in many national preservation forums have expressed concern
over the lack of advanced level continuing education in our field.  The
PI Institute has been created to fill this need.  The deans and
preservation faculty of five schools of library and information science,
with support from the National Endowment for the Humanities, have
collaborated to begin a series of annual workshops to offer advanced
education in library and archival preservation.

The PI Institute advisory committee, which includes Sally Buchanan,
Michele Cloonan, Carolyn Harris, Jan Paris, and Andrea Rolich,
encourages career professionals in library and archival preservation to
attend this year's program.  The PI Institute curriculum has been
designed for preservation administrators and educators, conservators,
archivists, and other professionals responsible for preservation

Courses for the first PI Institute are:

                  Preservation of Electronic Formats 
                  Science Serving Preservation 
                  Bookbinding and the Arts and Craft Movement  

Each course will meet for the duration of the Institute, allowing for an
in depth look at specific preservation issues.

The deadline for registration and housing reservations is July 16, 1993.
