Rutgers can accept a few more individuals into the Preservation
Management Institute, 2006-07

The Institute is designed for working librarians and archivists who
have preservation responsibilities but limited formal preservation
education. The program includes a full week of classes in New Jersey
in fall 2006, another week in spring 2007, and a final week in fall
2007.  The weeklong sessions include classroom instruction, some
hands-on experiences, and field trips.  In-between the three weeks
of classes, participants conduct guided preservation planning
activities for their home institutions, including conducting a
preservation survey and drafting a disaster plan. Our instructors
are among the most respected professionals in the field today and
are led by Evelyn Frangakis, Chief Librarian for Preservation of The
New York Public Library.

People from 30 states and 3 countries have participated in this
program since it began in 1998.  For a list, and some of their
evaluations of the program, please check the website.

Enrollment in the Institute is strictly limited.
