Archive Conservation Research Group

From: Chris Woods <conservation<-a>
Date: Saturday, April 19, 2008
Following informal discussions with conservators, archivists and
researchers, and with the advent of new International Conseil des
Archives (ICA) web site functionality, a new open group has been
established aimed at sharing knowledge and expertise specifically on
the care and conservation of traditional (i.e.
non-digital/electronic) archival materials: parchment and paper
manuscript, archival seals and traditional non-digital photographic
records positive and negative.  The group is called the Archive
Conservation Research Group and is aimed at helping conservation
professionals, archivists, scientists and researchers to seek, share
or discuss advice and information.  News and information can be
posted and discussed and while the main language for Group postings
is most likely to be English (the ICA site is bilingual with
French), other languages can be accommodated and will be translated
wherever possible.

You do not have to be a member of ICA in order to access the group,
and involvement is free.  Just go to the ICA Open Groups web page
and sign up to the group.  If in the future you have a question
about the nature of archive material and its conservation, or want
to tell others about a new development or discuss a topic, the Group
will allow you to reach an international network of archival

The following web link should take you directly to the ICA site page
referring to the Group.  To sign up just follow the on screen
