Welcome to the University of Maryland Library Preservation Department!

We take care of the books, manuscripts, maps, newspapers, serials, and objects throughout the libraries of the College Park campus.  We also monitor the environmental conditions in the libraries, and prepare items for digitization.

We are located in the basement of McKeldin Library in room 0213.

On this site, you will find both work statistics and reviews of longer, extensive projects. Check out our Instagram (@umdpreservation) for continuous updates and short-term projects!
