Posters and postcards about food in libraries

From: Peter David Verheyen <pdv1>
Date: Friday, February 18, 1994
The Cornell University Library Department of Preservation and
Conservation has produced 2 postcards and a poster pointing out the
dangers associated with having food and drink in the libraries. These
resulted from a university wide poster competition sponsored by the
department. The competition was very successful resulting in numerous
entries. It also created a broad awareness across the University of the
problems associated with having food and drink in libraries and
archives. The designer of the winning poster was Cindy Rosen (formerly
of the Cornell University Press) and the postcards were designed by Risa
Mednick and Steve Dinneen (Publications, Dept. of International
Agriculture / Cornell University Press). The winners were presented with
checks for $100 by the University Librarian, an event recorded by the
local press.

Posters are available for $12.00 ea. Postcards are available at $1.00
for 5. These prices reflect the cost of production and s/h.
