Saira is one of two students accepted into our library and archive program. The location of the Center appeals to her as a future book conservator. “NYC offers a rich collection of manuscripts, particularly Islamic manuscripts, in which I am most interested,” she says. “With resources like the MMA, the New York Public Libraries and the Morgan Library and Museum, there is much in the city from which a student can learn.” A degree from the Conservation Center is important to Saira because it will give her an enhanced understanding of art history, which will better inform her treatment of historical objects. “NYC also means that I’ll have ready access to wonderful museums and internship opportunities. I can imagine nothing better!”
