The Collections Care Librarian is a new full-time position in the
Library. The previous incumbent managed the program on a half-time
basis and also served as Assistant Conservator in the Department's
Conservation Program. Erika brings to the Department broad knowledge
of the role of preservation in a large research library and a keen
understanding of the future of collections care. She will have
responsibility for directing the activities of the Collections Care
Program and for providing leadership on collections care matters
throughout the Library system. The Program handles the maintenance
and repair of circulating materials in the Sterling Memorial

the selection of materials for treatment and ensure that quality and
production standards are met consistently. Among her many duties in
the Preservation Department, Erika will have lead responsibility for
implementing a comprehensive collection cleaning and maintenance
program in the Sterling stack tower.
