Farewell, Helen!

Helen Bailey is leaving us today. She has worked in Preservation Services since September 2009 when she began her internship as part of the University of Texas library school program. While she was here Helen was in charge of two very important projects: the department web page redesign, and our celebration of "Preservation Week". In the last three days of her internship she installed the exhibit for the winners of the Book Arts Prize and is developed an on-line version as well. Busy, busy, busy!

So long and best wishes!
