The Northeast Document Conservation Center (NEDCC) is pleased to
announce that a memorandum of understanding has been signed by NEDCC
and the Nishio Conservation Studio in Washington D.C., defining a
business agreement to partner in a common pursuit to conserve Asian
artwork in the U.S., including Japanese, Chinese, and Korean
artifacts such as scrolls, screens, and wood block prints.

   "It is our hope to create a center for learning in the United
    States for this unique specialty.  Conservation services will be
    available at both NEDCC in Andover, MA, and the Nishio
    Conservation Studio in Washington, DC," said Michael Lee, NEDCC
    Director of Paper and Photograph Conservation.

Bill Veillette, NEDCC Executive Director, comments:

   "We're excited by the opportunity to partner with Yoshi Nishio
    and his talented staff.  Through our collaboration, we hope to
    not only expand this highly-specialized service, but to train
    and develop more conservators of Asian artwork."
