and advocating for the preservation of, and access to historic
cultural collections of all kinds.

The Banks/ Harris Preservation Award honors the memories of Paul
Banks and Carolyn Harris, early leaders in library preservation and
teachers and mentors for many in the field of preservation.  The
Banks/Harris Award is given each year by the Preservation and
Reformatting Section of the ALCTS. ALCTS is a division of the
American Library Association. The award, sponsored by Preservation
Technologies, L. P., consists of $1,500 and a citation.  It
