The Preservation and Conservation Department would like to welcome our newest staff member, Emily F. Shaw! Emily started on January 13, 2012 as our Digital Preservation Librarian. She comes to the University of Iowa from the University of Illinois, Urbana/Champaign, where she was most recently the Coordinator for Large-Scale Digitization. She brings with her a wealth of diverse experience in Digital Curation, as well as in hands-on Conservation treatment. Her first task is to review our digital policies, practices, and workflows and make recommendations for improvements. Emily is a great addition to our department, and we’re so excited that she’s here!
