Appointments at Yale

From: Paul Conway <pconway>
Date: Wednesday, September 22, 1993
I am pleased to announce two recent appointments in the Preservation
Department of Yale University Library.

Alexis Hagadorn fills the newly-created position of Collections
Conservator.  In her new position, Alexis will be responsible for
developing and managing a Collections Care Program to provide for the
repair and maintenance of circulating collections in the Sterling
Memorial Library complex, and, eventually, for training conservation
technicians to undertake this work in other Library units.  Alexis will
also spend significant time in the Conservation Studio undertaking
high-level treatments on materials from the Yale's Beinecke Rare Book
and Manuscript Library.

Alexis is a 1989 graduate of Barnard College, Columbia University with a
Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and English.  She holds a Master
of Science degree with a Certificate in Library and Archival
Conservation from Columbia University's School of Library Service.
Alexis recently completed a nine-month internship in the conservation
laboratories of Trinity College Library in Dublin, Ireland, where she
performed conservation treatments on items from the Early Printed Books
and Manuscripts Collections.  For two years prior to beginning her
graduate work, Alexis managed an in-house book repair department at the
Barnard College Library.

Winston Atkins has been appointed to the position of Preservation
Librarian.  Since February, Winston has been Yale's Andrew Mellon Intern
in Preservation Administration. Prior to coming to Yale, Winston was an
intern for two years at the Harry Ransom Humanities Research Center in
Austin, Texas.  From 1987 to 1990, Winston was, successively, Librarian
and Editor of Publications for the San Jacinto Museum of History
Association in Houston.  He received his Bachelor of Arts degree in 1975
from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and a Master of
Science in Library Science from UNC in 1982.  He is currently a doctoral
candidate in the Graduate School of Library and Information Science at
the University of Texas at Austin.

Among his many duties as Preservation Librarian, Winston Atkins will
manage the activities of the Department's Core Program, which is
responsible for the ensuring the preservation of Yale's circulating
collections.  In this capacity, he will supervise the operations of the
Microfilm Laboratory, oversee the preparation of new preservation
selection and decision- making guidelines for the Library, and develop
new grant-funded preservation initiatives.
