Conserving the Antiquarian Libraries of Arequipa
In July 2008 in cooperation with INLIBRI, a six member team from Alabama (Professor Anna Embree and graduate student Jessica Peterson), Iowa and Texas has spent the past two weeks working with local Peruvian authorities and Helen Ryan, Librarian and Director of Catalog Processing and Alvaro Meneses, Director of INLIBRI (Institute of the Book) and Bibliographer. Together the team has demonstrated methods for effective cleaning and exhibition and methods for non-damaging relocation of collections. The team has set-up a workshop and has trained local students from the esteemed Universidad Catolica de Santa Maria to continue the project in their absence.
