California Preservation Internship

From: Lynn Jones <ljones>
Date: Thursday, November 3, 1994
The California State Library, through the LSCA program, has funded the
California Preservation internship, for which see the job posting below.
The internship is funded for this year, for a librarian in California
whose institution is willing to offer leave time and to take on a
certain amount of preservation consultation and facilitation in its
region.  The hope is to identify someone with experience in
librarianship, who will be able to take full advantage of the
information offered to return home and serve as a regional coordinator
for preservation activities.  Some funding is available for acquiring a
basic library of preservation reference materials for that purpose as

The hope is to develop an annual internship opportunity, which will help
build the network of preservation expertise throughout the state.  Thus,
it is very important to identify a qualified candidate this year to
prove the need for the project and make it a success.

If you are interested in more information please contact Barclay Ogden,
