June Preservation Tip

This month we’re highlighting a resource of collective wisdom: the American Institute for Conservation’s wiki page. It is a vast and detailed source for many kinds of preservation and conservation knowledge: from comparing different types of supplies and materials, how to care for a variety of materials, the newest conservation research and literature, health and safety practices, and more. If you’re interested in lending some of your own expertise by contributing, don’t hesitate to follow the steps in the “Getting Started” section of the homepage!

If you have topics you would like to see highlighted, or suggestions for resources, please send them to Nariné Bournoutian at nbournoutian@law.columbia.edu. Tips from previous months are available here.
