Applications are now being accepted for the
Preservation Management Institute, 2008-09

Sponsored by Rutgers University SCILS

The Institute is designed for working librarians and archivists who
have preservation responsibilities but limited formal preservation
education. The program, located in downtown New Brunswick, New
Jersey, includes a full week of classes in fall 2008, another week
in spring 2009, and a final week in fall 2009.  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

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 to 17 people. One
scholarship is available for someone working with New Jersey history
