The presentations are open to the Texas Tech community; however, space is limited so please register with Tracy Popp at tracy.popp@ttu.edu to reserve a spot.

Preservation Week, a national event encouraged by the American Library Association, focuses on preserving collections – in libraries, archives and museums, and especially items held and loved by individuals, families and communities.
