Conservation Program

The Special Collections and Archives team has an obligation to ensure that collection material will be available for future generations of Washington and Lee University students and external researchers alike.

One way we accomplish this is by identifying preservation concerns and working with rare book and manuscript conservators to repair and restore these materials. 

If you are interested in supporting our conversation program by sponsoring the conservation of a particular piece or by contributing towards the restoration of an item in need of preservation, please contact Kim Sims, Associate University Librarian for Special Collections and Archives.
