Cathleen A. Baker Fellows in Paper Conservation awarded

The University of Michigan (U-M) Library is delighted to announce
the first Cathleen A. Baker Fellows in Paper Conservation. Lauren
Calcote and Aisha Wahab started their fellowships in early September
and will remain in residence with the U-M Library Conservation Lab
through August 2013.

Lauren Calcote is a September 2012 graduate of the New York State
College, Buffalo, master's degree program in art conservation,
specializing in book conservation. During her fellowship she will be
focusing on historical binding structures and book conservation
treatments ranging from batch treatment of nineteenth-century cloth
bindings to individual treatment of complex vellum books.

Aisha Wahab is starting her final year in the Buffalo program. The
Baker Fellowship is helping to support her third-year internship at
the University of Michigan Library Conservation Lab. Specializing in
paper conservation, she has particular interest in the conservation
of Islamic and Middle Eastern manuscripts.

The Cathleen A. Baker Fellowship in Paper Conservation was
established in 2011 by a gift from Dr. Baker, Conservation Librarian
in the Department of Preservation and Conservation at the University
of Michigan Library. The fellowship provides financial support for
conservators at various levels in their careers to enable them to
spend time in the U-M Library's Conservation Lab to increase their
knowledge about the conservation of paper-based collections.
Applications for fellowship projects starting in Fall 2013 are due
January 31, 2013. Information about the fellowship and application
forms are available at
