Canadian Conservation Institute Library
"CCI operates a library as part of its mandate to promote the proper care and preservation of Canada's moveable cultural heritage. The conservation and museology collections make the Library's holdings unique in Canada. The Library has a large selection of more than 10,000 books and 400 journal subscriptions on a wide range of conservation and museum topics. The CCI Library also disseminates information by contributing references to two international databases: BCIN, the bibliographic database of the Conservation Information Network, and BMUSE, the museology bibliography database. Both databases are operated by the Canadian Heritage Information Network (CHIN), a Special Operating Agency of the Department of Canadian Heritage."
