The University of Texas at Austin School of Information has received
a generous grant of $25,000 from the Gladys Krieble Delmas
Foundation.  The grant was awarded to the School's Preservation and
Conservation Studies program (PCS) to provide support for
conservator student internships.

Founded in 1981 at Columbia University, PCS was the first program
created specifically to educate preservation administrators and
conservators to address the mammoth and increasingly staggering
problem of preserving the nation's book and paper holdings in
libraries (especially academic libraries) and archives.  Moved to
the University of Texas at Austin in 1991, PCS continues as the only
degree-granting program in the United States preparing preservation
administrators and conservators specifically for libraries and

For their third year in the program, students studying to become
conservators complete a nine-month internship in a major
conservation laboratory, as those at the Library of Congress, the
National Archives, the Huntington Library, Harvard University
Libraries, and Columbia University Libraries.  This generous grant
from the Delmas Foundation will be used immediately to help defray
the costs of these internships.  For more information contact
