Survey on sourcing conservation materials

Sourcing conservation materials in challenging contexts

This brief survey aims to collect information on how conservators
and other heritage practitioners source conservation materials,
particularly those employed for storage. I'm primarily interested in
how the choice is made in contexts in which "conservation grade"
materials are not readily available. These contexts may include:
archaeological sites; heritage sites or museums located in remote or
poorly connected areas; heritage sites or museums in low income

Please only participate if you have at least some experience of
working in contexts similar to the ones described above.

Please read the following information and select one of the two

If you work in contexts similar to the ones described only
occasionally, for example if you are mainly based in a museum in a
western country but sometimes do fieldwork, please answer this


If you predominantly work in areas where "conservation grade"
materials are generally hard to find, please answer this other


The information gathered will contribute to a dissertation on the
use of sustainable techniques and locally produced materials in
conservation. The data will also be disseminated online at


Thanks for your time,
