Every day is preservation day at the UCLA Library. Preservation is written into our vision statement, and all of us work to make sure scholarship and heritage, no matter what the format, will remain accessible to the world.

This year’s American Library Association Preservation Week theme is textile preservation, and institutions around the world will be using the hashtag #preswk to talk about their preservation programs and services.
