I am delighted to announce that Elizabeth Rideout, Project Technician, has been named the Andrew W. Mellon Fellow at the Northeast Document Conservation Center in Andover, MA. Elizabeth will start her one-year appointment at the nationally known conservation center this June.
Elizabeth has been a member of the U.S. Congressional Serial Set/ NewsBank Project Team since 2011. She has been the lead technician for the last eighteen months and has been instrumental in keeping track and accounting for all the returning volumes as the project comes to a close. Elizabeth has also been active in the Book Arts Program, leading workshops on a variety of book binding methods.
Elizabeth’s last day is Friday, May 31, co-incidentally, the official closing date of the eight year project. This is a fabulous opportunity for Elizabeth and we wish her well on her next adventure.
