use the $1000 grant to improve their ability to care for
collections. Fundable activities include workshops, seminars,

criteria include the quality of the proposal, the qualifications of

collections in the applicant's care.  Applicants may be conservators
or conservation technicians, work in institutions or private

Past winners of the grants were Karen Jones and Ellen Chin.  Karen
used her grant to attend the Southwestern Collections Conservation
Technician Training Course in Texas; she is responsible for
conservation in the Jefferson County Public Library System,
Lakewood, Colorado.  Ellen applied her grant toward the
International Course on Paper Conservation sponsored by ICCROM; she
is conservator of the New York City Municipal Archives.
