The Hawaiʻi State Archives is very excited and fortunate to present a free informational lecture by Jeanne Drewes. Ms. Drewes has been part of the preservation/conservation community for forty years, with her final position at the Library of Congress as Chief of Binding & Collections Care from 2006 through 2019. Today she continues her professional career as a consultant in the areas of risk management, disaster preparedness, general collections conservation and preservation for cultural heritage collections. Her most recent projects include updating the ALA manual on risk management and insurance last updated in 2005, and to be published in an updated edition this year. She works with the PAR Performing Arts Readiness grant to assist that sector of cultural heritage where she is currently working on a webinar on insurance issues. She continues actively supporting IFLA, as the chair of the Preservation and Conservation Section standing committee through 2021. She publishes and presents on a variety of topics in the area of preservation and has been acknowledged for her work at IFLA, 2019, and ALA with multiple awards.

Her talk will provide information about the Library of Congress care for collections and relate to universal care of cultural heritage.
