Survey on the use of magnets in conservation

The Chester Beatty Library, Dublin recently completed a project to
remount their Tibetan thangkas on display. The composite nature of
these three-dimensional objects makes them difficult to exhibit in a
museum setting. I worked with conservators at the Library to develop
a non-invasive mounting method to install the thangkas using Rare
Earth magnets and Perspex supports.

As a result of this work we are now interested in researching how
magnets are being used by conservators for mounting objects and
developed as a treatment tool. I would be extremely grateful if you
would take the time to answer the following ten questions by Monday
30 September 2013.

All responses will be treated with confidentiality and used for
academic purposes only. If you would like a copy of the results of
the survey please let me know. Thank you for taking the time to give
me your feedback.
