Providing effective care for museum collections or your treasured mementos requires an understanding of the environment in which the object is stored and a little about the materials involved in it's construction. 

Here's a collection of resources that will help you understand how to store and preserve your collections, protect them in a disaster, and identify damage and deterioration.

Many objects require the expertise of a professional conservator to assess and manage significant damage and deterioration. You can find more information about approaches to conversation on our Conservation page
