If anyone knows anyone in Burma working on the conservation of palm
leaf manuscripts, could they please directly communicate with Ms.
Tandon, a former intern in conservation at LOC, whose message to me is
below? I would appreciate being carboned, however, since that is an
issue of concern to me as well.

I hope you remember meeting with me at the Library where I was working
as Fulbright scholar in the Conservation Division with Jesse Munn to
develop approaches for conservation of palm leaf manuscripts under your
charge in the year 2001. I hope you are doing well .
After my return to India, I established a NGO here in J&K called
Preserve Art Treasure and Heritage. We are working in rural areas for
spreading awareness about Preventive Conservation most of the time, And
now I am going to present a Paper on our work in Yangon Myanmar at the
7th International Symposium on Cultural Heritage being organized by
ASEAN and Aus Heritage from
21-25th August . I leave day after tomorrow. I know this is too short a
notice but I was hoping find some contacts there to look into
preservation problems of Palm leaf manuscript collections while I am
Looking forward to your response,
With sincere regards,
