The Graduate School of Library and Information Science of the
University of Texas at Austin announces receipt of a two-year grant
of $460,000 outright and $80,000 in matching from the National
Endowment for the Humanities to support the Preservation and
Conservation Studies Program whose graduates take responsibility for
maintaining both the integrity of and the continuing usability of
the priceless resources of America's libraries and archives.

The NEH award will permit the PCS program, ranked number 1 in the
most recent survey by U.S. News and World Report, to add
preservation of sound to the areas of study available for students;
to establish a clinic experience; and to continue offering the
instruction fundamental to producing outstanding preservation
administrators and conservators of library and archival resources.

Begun 21 years ago at Columbia University, the program moved to the
University of Texas at Austin in 1991-1992 and has graduated 150
professionals who occupy senior preservation and conservation
positions throughout the nation and in the country's most
prestigious institutions, including the Library of Congress, the
National Archives, the Smithsonian Institution, the Newberry
Library, the New York Botanical Garden; Stanford, Harvard, and
Michigan State universities; and the Universities of California at
Berkeley, Florida, Maryland, and Notre Dame.
