The intern reports to the Conservation Librarian and works closely

are likely to include surface cleaning, adhesive removal,
humidification and flattening of paper, mending paper and filling
losses (including aesthetic compensation), creating appropriate
housings, and other treatments.  The complexity of treatments and
level of decision making will increase as skills develop. At the end
of the internship, the intern will be required to produce a written
report or presentation of their work.

    Previous experience in conservation is preferred, but not
