Member projects

Conservators work on a variety of projects, including the treatment of individual objects, the preservation of entire collections, collection management issues, education and in-situ preservation of historic sites.

Conservation is a time-intensive occupation so large institutional projects can last several years and require extensive research and testing phases prior to carrying out treatments and remedial interventions. Many also require significant funding which has to be raised to support the project.
