Preserved to Serve: The Massachusetts Preservation Agenda, announced on p. 42 in the last issue, is available from Gregor Trinkaus-Randall at the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners, 648 Beacon St., Boston, MA 02215-2070 (617/267-9400).

Preservation Directory Finally Mailed Out

Last fall, subscribers were invited to fill out a form for inclusion in a preservation directory which would give their address, phone, fax and Email address. It would also list their job function, activities and interests.

The directory sat on the back burner for so long, because of the move to Austin, that a number of corrections had to be made to update the listings, but it did get printed and was recently sent without charge to all 131 of the people listed in it.
