Consuela Metzger appointed Head, Library Conservation Center, UCLA

From: Dawn Aveline <avelined<-a>
Date: Wednesday, October 15, 2014
I am delighted to announce that Consuela (Chela) Metzger will be
joining the UCLA Library Preservation Program as Head of the Library
Conservation Center.

Consuela comes to us from Winterthur, Delaware, where she is the
conservator of library collections and as well as associate faculty
at the Winterthur University of Delaware program in Art
Conservation.  In addition to directing the conservation work and
preservation services for the library there, Consuela instructs
first and second year conservation students, developing syllabi,
readings, and assignments for several conservation courses.  Prior
to her tenure at Winterthur, from 2001 to 2010, Consuela held the
position of lecturer in book conservation and book history for the
conservation program at the University of Texas at Austin.  From
1994 to 2000, she completed two separate grant funded conservation
projects at the Huntington Library, working on materials from
several significant collections, ranging from 16th and 17th century
English pamphlets to a children's art education collection.  She has
also taught book conservation in Buenos Aires, Argentina, under a
three month long Fulbright Lectureship.

In addition to her teaching, conservation bench work, publications,
and consulting, Ms. Metzger is an accomplished book artist.

Given her significant teaching activities at Winterthur, Consuela's
appointment will begin on December 15, 2014.  With the addition of
Consuela to the team, we look forward to exciting achievements and
new growth for both Preservation and for the UCLA Library.
