Steven Villereal appointed Audiovisual Conservator University of Virginia Library

The University of Virginia Library is delighted to announce that we
have hired Steven Villereal as the Library's first permanent
Audiovisual Conservator.   Steven Villereal received his BA from
Oberlin College and his MA in Moving Image Archiving and
Preservation from New York University.  Steven arrived at the
University of Virginia in September of 2009 as part of an
IMLS-funded post-graduate fellowship from NYU's Moving Image and
Archives Preservation (MIAP) Program.  He quickly became a vital
part of the Library's Preservation Services program.  Steven was
instrumental in helping us equip our audio and video preservation
labs as well as our film inspection station.  He conducted several
assessments and helped provide technical expertise on grants and
outsourcing projects.

 Steven's appointment coincided quite appropriately with
Preservation Week 2012.  As our first permanent audiovisual
conservator, Steven's presence will significantly increase the
Library's ability to preserve and care for our audiovisual
collections.  His enthusiasm, expertise, and community connections
will ensure the stewardship of our audiovisual collections well into
the future as we define priorities, refine workflows, and enhance
access to previously inaccessible AV materials.
