The Kilgarlin Center for the Preservation of the Cultural Record focuses on preservation issues by conducting research, sponsoring symposia, and convening expert thinking on broad, timely, interrelated topics that address the management of our documentary heritage, and builds on the School's renowned graduate education program in preservation administration and conservation. Kilgarlin students learn the art and science of collections care and the methods of managing and promoting preservation activities in order to fulfill the fundamental goal of extending the life of materials in libraries and archives.

The Center began in 1981 as the Conservation Education Program in the School of Library Service at Columbia University. Graduates occupy leading conservator and preservation administration positions in cultural institutions around the world, applying the fundamental concepts of whole collections management. In 1992, this program was moved to the University of Texas at Austin under the name, Preservation and Conservation Studies (PCS). In 2004, the School of Information received generous funding to promote preservation and conservation from William and Margaret Kilgarlin. The Center is now named in their honor.
