    Hello there!
    I am currently a student in an MLS program with a focus on archives and preservation, here, in Portland, Oregon.
    I am very interested in becoming involved with the Preservation Studies Summer Field School at Tulane in 2010 and was wondering how to begin this process, if I am even eligible!
    I am very interested in cemetery restoration, especially in the South.
    I look forward to hearing from you in the soon future!
