Caring for our physical and digital collections relies on a dedicated team of experts across the Stanford Libraries. We hope you've enjoyed meeting a few of the people behind our preservation program this week. You can learn more about Preservation Week and find preservation resources, quick tips, and free webinars covering the spectrum of collection care from textiles to personal digital archives on the Preservation Week site.

Our Preservation Week Q&A series turns its focus on Conservation Services today. The Conservation Services team plays a primary role in the care of library collections.
