C.V. Starr East Asian Library Tour

HBC Member Event Calendar

We’re working hard to improve our programs and make them both more enjoyable and interesting for our membership. We will no longer be holding the Board Meeting just prior to the program so that our monthly meeting will be devoted to activities both hospitable and interesting for everyone who attends. We also will be holding some programs and meetings on days other than our usual first Tuesday of the month so that many who have not been able to attend in the past can participate. And some of our initial events this year will be held in new venues as we try to make greater use of the resources of the Bay Area book community. Please mark these dates in your calendar and join us!

The UC Berkeley Library Preservation Department's mission is to maintain the collections in serviceable condition in order to provide access for present and future generations. Within the Preservation Department, the Conservation Treatment Division oversees the repair and housing of circulating and special collections materials. The Library’s collections are wonderfully varied, and the conservators care for everything from letters from the Mark Twain Project, papyri fragments from the Center for Tebtunis Papyri, fine bindings at the Bancroft Library, scrolls from the East Asian Library, artists’ books from the Environmental Design Library, and much more.
