Subject: Preservation issues in graduate studies

Preservation issues in graduate studies

From: Steven Horwitz <shorwitz>
Date: Tuesday, October 5, 1993
The Medieval Academy of America's Committee on Preservation and Access
wishes to discover how (or whether) graduate students receive
instruction about issues in preservation. We are interested not only
about whether graduate students in medieval studies are trained in how
materials should be handled during research, but also whether graduate
students are introduced to broader issues such as how embrittlement will
affect research in the future. This query is being cross listed on
boards of interest to medievalists, rare book librarians and
preservation specialists in the hope that each group will provide
information about training, whether informal or formal, at universities
and colleges. Even if there has been no attempt to introduce these
matters at your school, I would be very interested in hearing your
suggestions about what should be done.
