Interns from China, Part One: bookbinding and book repair

By Michele Brown

The first 2 participants in our preservation training program for librarians from China, funded by the Henry Luce Foundation, arrived at the beginning of November.



Zhang Lijing is a librarian in the special collections department in the Peking University Library.




Deng Liang is a librarian in the History of Science Collection at Tsinghua University Library.


The first two weeks of their program has focused on the history of western bookbinding, binding case-bound books, and repair of circulating collections.
