Calling All Angels

With the AIC annual meeting fast approaching, it's time to think
about volunteering for this year's AIC Angel Project.  This year,
those with book conservation experience are particularly needed for
a project to benefit the Redwood Library and Athenaeum in Newport,
Rhode Island (see <URL:> ).  The
Redwood is the oldest continuously run circulating library in
America. It is located just 40 minutes south of the annual meeting
site in Providence. The project will take place on June 16, 2006.

The goal of the project is to conduct a condition survey on special
collection books that were water damaged during a fire in December
2005.  The books were frozen at the time and are now undergoing
freeze drying.

Each Angel will be asked to collect condition information and to
work with other team specialists on digital photography and
specifications for protective enclosures.  Lunch and T-shirts will
be provided for all working Angels.

If needed, accommodations can be provided in Newport on the night of
the June 15, 2006 but you will be responsible for your own travel
arrangements to Newport on that day.  Otherwise, transportation
between the conference hotel and the Redwood will be provided on
June 16.
