Appointments at University of Virginia Libraries

Date: Thursday, May 14, 2009
The University of Virginia Library is pleased to announce two recent
additions to its Preservation Services Department.  The UVA Library
was recently awarded a generous grant by the Mellon Foundation to
support the development of its Preservation program.

Kara McClurken is the new Head of Preservation Services.  Kara
formerly worked at the University of Maryland, Smith College, and
most recently, at Solinet (now Lyrasis) where she served as a
consultant, created and taught workshops on a wide variety of
preservation topics and participated in local, regional, and
national disaster preparedness initiatives.  Kara's new duties
include supervision of a comprehensive preservation program
providing book repair, commercial binding, reformatting and
emergency response for the University's 13 branch library system.

Eliza Gilligan was hired as the Conservator for University Library
Collections, a new position at the Library. Eliza's previous work
experience at the Smithsonian Institution Libraries, Michigan State
University and the Northeast Document Conservation Center,  will be
applied to the founding of a conservation program to meet the needs
of the general and special collections at the library, including the
design and construction of a new book and paper conservation
laboratory on University grounds.
