I’d like to separate some of the ongoing conversations about Texas from concrete ideas on what a library conservation training program would look like. I’d like to use this post as a landing place for ideas that answer these questions:
What are the basic curricular requirements for graduate level training in book and paper conservation? In order to deliver such a curriculum effectively, what is the desirable scope of faculty (numbers and expertise), financial aid, laboratory facilities, internship opportunities, and administrative staff?
There are some good ideas posited already over at the BPIG roundup. If you have some thoughts, please post them here. All ideas, big and small, blue sky and practical are welcome, the more the better.
Roberta Pilette and I sat down after the BPIG meeting to think this through….here’s an image of what we were thinking.
