New publication--News in Conservation

The International Institute for Conservation (IIC) is proud to
announce the launch of its new newspaper "News in Conservation".

This is an important departure for IIC.   News in Conservation
replaces the former "IIC Bulletin" with a completely new full-colour
format and extended content.  It contains conservation news from
around the world, including features and interviews, as well updates
on IIC's own activities and the latest on the London 2008 Congress,
Conservation and Access.  It joins the suite of IIC's established
" Conservation" publications, alongside "Studies in
Conservation" and "Reviews in Conservation".

The first issue contained articles by IIC members who have worked in
northern India and in Bhutan. Issue Number 2 included coverage of
the impact of the Peruvian earthquake on the cultural heritage, the
creation of a shelter over excavated areas of Catalhoyuk Neolithic
site, and cross-cultural collaboration in the conservation of
China's heritage. Future issues will reflect the important work that
is carried out by conservators globally, as well as encouraging
contact between IIC members worldwide.  It will hold up a mirror to
the profession, enabling conservators to find out what other
conservators are doing, how they are thinking and how approaches
differ, helping to strengthen the work of the conservation community
and to reinforce the conservation of the world's shared cultural
heritage.  The newspaper will also be of interest to many other
readers outside the profession.

A comprehensive listing of conservation events is complemented by an
enhanced Events area on the IIC website, which will be re-launched
in the coming months.

Everyone can view and download a complimentary copy of Issue Number
1 as a PDF from the IIC website. But to ensure you receive all
future two-monthly issues as they are produced (as well as "Studies
in Conservation" and "Reviews in Conservation"), join IIC on-line at
