[BKARTS] how to become a bookarts librarian



I worked as a repair and binding tech for two years at the main library at the
University of North Carolina, and then entered UNC's School of Information and
Library Science, the top-rated program in the country overall
(http://sils.unc.edu/index.htm). It has a preservation class but not a
program; however I know grads who have had success going into rare book
librarianship (collecting, cataloging, curating). The best place to go if you
want to be a conservator - repairing and caring for rare books and special
collections, is the University of Texas at Austin, hands down
(http://www.gslis.utexas.edu/). I don't know any conservators who *didn't* go
there.
