Where Preservation is Taught


There are two formal programs leading to a degree or certificate at the graduate level in North America: Columbia University in New York City, and Queens University in Kingston, Ontario (#1 and 27, below). In addition, 25 library schools accredited by the American Library Association offer one or more courses in preservation, and some of these also work preservation into other courses. (This information is from a recent draft of the Preservation Education Directory being prepared by Susan Swartzburg and ultimately to be distributed by ALA's Resources and Technical Services Division.)
