Help Claire bind Italian books!
Organized by: Claire Broyles
My name is Claire and I am attending the University of South Carolina online, pursuing a Master's of Library and Information Science. I currently work at a small library in southwest Virginia and I'm excited to continue my career in the library field when I am finished with my degree.
To increase my knowledge and skills, I will be attending a preservation field school in Italy this summer, working hands on to learn ancient and modern book binding and preservation techniques. Preservation and archives have always been a passion of mine, and this program is a dream come true! The program is located in San Gemini, in the Italian region of Umbria.
This study abroad program is an amazing opportunity, but I need your help to get there! While the program is expensive, I also need to provide for my own round trip flight, and food while I am there. This program is also not affiliated with my school (though it is 100% legit!) so federal loans are not an option.
I would truly appreciate any help that you would be willing to provide to help me afford this amazing learning experience. Thank you!
