The Myanmar Librarian Training Consortium (ASU Libraries, University of Washington Libraries and Northern Illinois Library) announced that the consortium has been awarded a grant for librarian training for two years (2016-2017). According to Ralph Gabbard, one of the principal investigators, ASU Libraries will take the lead on preservation and conservation part of the grant while University of Washington Libraries will lead on Subject Librarianship and Northern Illinois University Library on digitization issues. Beginning in 2016, the consortium will offer three in country workshops, ASU Libraries will organize a preservation and conservation workshop. Each consortium library will host two of the six librarians at their institutions while the seventh librarian will be a preservation and conservation intern at ASU Libraries. This award was built on the success of the pilot program held by the consortium members in 2013 and it is hope that we will be able to extend this program beyond 2017.
