Conservation of Cultural Heritage covers the methods and practices needed for future museum professionals who will be working in various capacities with museum collections and artifacts. It also assists current professionals in understanding the complex decision-making processes that face conservators on a daily basis. The uniqueness of this book lies in correlating the aspects of material science and the behaviour of artifacts in a museum environment. It will be of special benefit to museum professionals not trained in conservation.

Covering a broad range of topics that are key to sound conservation in the museum, Conservation of Cultural Heritage is an important tool for students and professionals alike in ensuring that best practice is followed in the preservation of important collections.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"I wish I had such a book when I began this work a few years ago. It is the perfect reference, written in a lovely style, making technical language easy to understand". -Marie E. Kujenga, Allegany Museum, USA

"This work is an exceedingly valuable resource, covering a broad range of preservation issues including impacts of exhibition, environment and handling on all types of museum collections. The book also outlines care and handling requirements essential to those working with sensitive cultural materials. The information presented is at once practical, yet scholarly and based on the most current and extensive scientific research. It will serve collections care professionals and cultural heritage collections themselves very well for years to come."-D. Jordan Berson, SAA Preservation Publication Award Committee
