Carolyn Morrow leaves Harvard

From: Morrow Carolyn <morrow_carolyn1>
Date: Monday, June 13, 1994
Carolyn Clark Morrow is leaving her position at Harvard University as
Malloy-Rabinowitz Preservation Librarian.  She reports that it is hard
to leave the "best job in the world," but she has the "best of reasons"!
She has married and will be moving to the San Francisco area in August
with her husband and family and, for the immediate future, will be
working as a consultant.

During her five-year tenure, Harvard significantly expanded its
preservation program for the library collections.  Currently there are
108 FTE engaged in preservation activities librarywide, including 27
professionals.  Annual expenditures for preservation are approximately.
$4 million.  In 1989, Harvard became a major contributor to the national
brittle books program administered by NEH. In 1990, the preservation
program for the Harvard College Library was consolidated under Morrow
and she assumed a joint appointment in the Harvard College Library and
the Harvard University Library.  In 1992, Harvard expanded its program
to protect and provide for the appropriate physical treatment of special
collections by establishing a conservation laboratory.  Both the
preservation projects office and the conservation laboratory are
centralized in the University Library's Preservation Office and provide
services to Harvard's decentralized system of libraries.

In fall 1994, the Preservation Office will move into new space adjacent
to Harvard Yard.  A national search will be conducted this summer to
fill the position of Malloy-Rabinowitz Preservation Librarian at Harvard
