Preservation Roundtable will host special guest

Message from Patricia Turpening, Chair, Preservation Committee

Dear colleagues,

The TS Preservation Committee is hosting a special guest this year at the Preservation Roundtable.

Monday, 18 July, 10:15am - 11:30am

Ellen Cunningham-Kruppa is the director of the Kilgarlin Center for Preservation of the Cultural Record at the School of Information at the University of Texas. The Center was established last fall with a $1M endowment from William Kilgarlin, a former Texas Supreme Court Justice. According to the press release announcing the Center, "Through research and education, the Center's mission is to advance knowledge and practice in the record of the human enterprise, creativity, and discovery. Building on the School of Information's top ranking programs in preservation management and conservation studies, the new Center will also address pressing concerns in digital preservation, and promote research, education, and public outreach in the broad area of cultural records management."

Ellen also teaches courses in preservation management, preservation reformatting, conservation, and digitization.

Ellen will talk to us about some exciting initiatives being undertaken at the Kilgarlin Center.

Please join us for what promises to be an interesting discussion with time for Q&A.
