2017 National Preservation Week

The Iowa State University?Library Preservation Department plans a special event for National Preservation Week. Three Ask the Experts sessions will be held in the Main Lobby of Parks Library:

  • Tuesday, April 25: 9 - 11 a.m.
  • Wednesday, April 26: 2 - 4 p.m.
  • Thursday, April 27: noon - 2 p.m.

Preservation Department staff will be on hand to answer questions. Guest experts include Pete Sixbey of the State Historical Society of Iowa (on Tuesday) and Suzanne LeSar of the Textiles and Clothing Museum (on Tuesday and Thursday).

Members of the campus community and beyond are welcome to bring?treasures for preservation advice.
