Pictured in this photo at the 10th ABRACOR Congress (Biennial meeting of the Brazilian Association of Conservators - Restorers of Cultural Assets) from left to right are Maria Angela Machado, 1996 Ransom Center intern from Brazil, Guita Mindlin, President of ABER (Brazilian Association of Bookbinding and Conservation) and Olivia Primanis, Ransom Center senior conservator. Primanis, supported in part by funds from UT Institute of Latin American Studies through the United States Department of Education, was invited to make a presentation at the meeting in São Paulo last November. Olivia’s slide lecture explored conservation treatment techniques most frequently used to repair damaged books at the Center. Other speakers gave updates on preservation initiatives and research and conservation projects in their own countries. The meeting, attended mainly by Brazilian conservators, drew an international group of participants, enhancing global understanding in education in the field.
