This series of blog posts highlights the different spaces across the Harvard campus where Preservation Services staff work to preserve and conserve library materials. 

Terri Messina is the Conservation Technician in the Harvard Law School Library’s conservation space. The lab at the Law School is located on the first floor. Her work encompasses a wide variety of repairs and enclosures for the General Circulating Collections as well as minor repairs and enclosures for the Historical and Special Collections. While her space is small, Terri is able to pack in quite a bit of equipment and supplies in her room with a half underground view.
