GSLIS at UT-Austin announces $0.5 million award

    The Graduate School of Library and Information Science of the University
of Texas at Austin announces receipt of a two-year grant of $460,000
outright and $80,000 in matching from the National Endowment for the
Humanities to support the Preservation and Conservation Studies Program
whose graduates take responsibility for maintaining both the integrity of
and the continuing usability of the priceless resources of America¹s
libraries and archives.

    The NEH award will permit the PCS program, ranked number 1 in the most
recent survey by U.S. News and World Report, to add preservation of sound to
the areas of study available for students; to establish a clinic experience;
and to continue offering the instruction fundamental to producing
outstanding preservation administrators and conservators of library and
archival resources.

    Begun 21 years ago at Columbia University, the program moved to the
University of Texas at Austin in 1991-1992 and has graduated 150
professionals who occupy senior preservation and conservation positions
throughout the nation and in the country¹s most prestigious institutions,
including the Library of Congress, the National Archives, the Smithsonian
Institution, the Newberry Library, the New York Botanical Garden; Stanford,
Harvard, and Michigan State universities; and the Universities of California
at Berkeley, Florida, Maryland, and Notre Dame.
