The Milton S. Eisenhower Library (MSEL) of the Johns Hopkins
University has a reputation for providing training and educational
opportunities in the field of preservation and conservation.  There
are plans underway to establish a new training and educational
program at MSEL.  This program is open to book and paper
conservators, curators, archivists, librarians, book and paper
craftspeople, hobbyists, etc.  The curriculum will include both
theory and hands-on lessons.  If you or someone you know are
interested in this opportunity, please respond to the questions
below by October 10, 2001.  Send your responses via e-mail to Martha
