Schreiner University’s Logan Library receives conservation bookshelf  

Institute of Museum and Library Services logo Schreiner University’s treasured objects and artifacts will be preserved for future generations with help from the Institute of Museum and Library Services, through IMLS Connecting to Collections Bookshelf, a core set of conservation books, DVDs and online resources. IMLS is the primary source of federal funding for museums and libraries, and along with the American Association for State and Local History, will award a total of 2,000 free sets of the IMLS Bookshelf by the end of 2008.

“We are pleased to announce the first group of IMLS Bookshelf recipients. These small libraries and museums are taking up the charge to care for America’s heritage,” said Dr. Anne-Imelda Radice, director of IMLS.

William Logan Library Schreiner’s William Logan Library is among the first to receive the IMLS Bookshelf resources, which focus on collections typically found in art or history museums and in libraries' special collections, with an added selection of texts for zoos, aquaria, public gardens, and nature centers. It addresses such topics as the philosophy and ethics of collecting, collections management and planning, emergency preparedness, and culturally specific conservation issues.
