Relevant information for museums: preventive conservation guidelines for collections

The Canadian Conservation Institute (CCI) is proud to announce the launch of “Preventive conservation guidelines for collections”, a new online resource for collections care professionals. Explore the full guidelines HERE.

The resource consists of 18 sections. Some sections provide explanations and integrated advice on the care of specific types of collections and others provide basic care guidelines for all types of collections. Notable topics include:

  • Caring for archaeological collections
  • Caring for natural history collections
  • Caring for outdoor objects
  • Caring for paintings
  • Handling heritage objects

Preventive conservation guidelines for collections is now online thanks to the hard work of the dedicated staff at CCI.
