About the article
Molly McGath, PhD, research fellow at the Freer Gallery of Art, did her doctoral research on the deterioration mechanisms of cellulose acetate in the presence of triphenyl phosphate plasticizer at the Smithsonian Institution Museum Conservation Institute. She holds a materials science and engineering degree from the University of Arizona. She researched cellulose acetate lamination as an Andrew W. Mellon post-doctoral fellow within the Heritage Science for Conservation group at Johns Hopkins University; the results of this research are contained within this paper.
Sonja Jordan-Mowery established the Department of Conservation and Preservation at the University of Notre Dame, Indiana in 1986. From 1999 through 2003, she served as Division Chief for Special Collections and Preservation at the Harold Washington Library, Chicago. She was hired as Director of Conservation and Preservation for the Sheridan Libraries at Johns Hopkins University in 2000. With assistance from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, she founded Heritage Science for Conservation (HSC) in 2008 and served as its PI. In 2015, she retired from Johns Hopkins to dedicate more time to research, consulting, and her private conservation practice.
Mark Pollei is acting Director of the Department of Conservation and Preservation at the Sheridan Libraries and Museums at Johns Hopkins University. For nearly 20 years he has been involved with book and paper conservation in academic institutions. He completed bookbinding training the North Bennet Street School prior to completing successful internships at the Library of Congress and the Houghton Library. From 1997 to 2012 he served as Department Chair of the book and paper conservation of the Harold B. Lee Library at Brigham Young University.
Steven Heslip is the Director of User Experience at the Johns Hopkins University Sheridan Libraries and Museums. In this role, Heslip provides leadership in the development and application of user-centered approaches to the design of services. He conducts user research to identify and understand stakeholders’ needs, and introduces evidence-based decision making in the development of service prototypes. His work includes emphases on digital services, human-to-human services, and spaces as services. He holds a master’s degree in Human-Computer Interaction from DePaul University in Chicago, Illinois.
John Baty, PhD, Assistant Research Professor and Heritage Science for Conservation Scientist, is appointed to the Departments of Materials Science & Engineering and Conservation & Preservation at Johns Hopkins University (JHU). At JHU, Baty teaches, conducts conservation research, advises students and fellows, and develops partnerships with conservators, scientists, engineers, and industry. He has been a Research Assistant at the University of Iowa Center for the Book, a Research Chemist at Wilhelm Imaging Research, Inc., and a Research Chemist at the National Archives and Records Administration. He holds a PhD in paper science from the University of Manchester in the UK.
