New Staff Member
Beth Heller will start next week as our new Preservation Librarian. Beth and her colleague, Laura Staneff, have been working with the AAC and CMC for about a year on a long-range collections care strategy that encompasses the Library, Bradford Washburn Mountaineering Museum, and plans for the Nick Clinch Central Asia Library.
Beth is an art and paper conservator by profession and she has presented and taught courses at the University of Texas, University of Houston, and the Texas Association of Museums. Her primary responsibilities will be to run most of the Library’s daily operations, but she will also play strategic roles in grant writing, care of collections, and making the museum and library an integrated knowledge resource that will increasingly become available online.
