I am happy to announce that Kristen St. John joined SUL on January 21, 2014, as Head of Conservation Services. Before joining SUL, Kristen had been the Collections Conservator at UCLA for eleven years. She also worked at Rutgers University Libraries as a Conservator for Special Collections and University Archives. However, this is not Kristen's first experience with SUL; she was a volunteer intern for our Conservation Department early in her career under the supervision of Walter Henry and Eleanor Stewart. She went on to work in a variety of labs including a private conservation lab, an historical society, and the Library of Congress.
