Lectures on microscopy

Optical magnification is the most accessible and easily understood
instrumental technology for analyzing art, architecture and other
cultural heritage structures and materials.  That's why instruction
by expert microscopists from diverse fields of science and
engineering can be so very interesting, inspiring and helpful for
conservators of cultural heritage.  That's also why access to and
guidance in using a diverse microscopy laboratory and its research
library can be so very valuable to working conservators.

The New York Microscopical Society has provided instruction, access,
and technical guidance to conservators and others for many years.
Our most recent NYMS event specifically geared to conservators was
Austin Nevin's November 2, 2012 lecture, "Advances in the technical
study of Renaissance Italian paintings: multidisciplinary research
and on-line collaboration," co-sponsored at the New York Academy of
Medicine by NYAM and the New York Conservation Foundation, and
facilitated by our generous colleague NYAM's head conservator Erin
Albritton.

Now the New York Microscopical Society has three more
conservation-relevant events coming up, one each on Sunday January
27, 2013 Wednesday February 6, 2013, and Saturday February 9, 2013.
More events are coming in March, April and May 2013.  For
