The September/December issue of the ICCM National Newsletter lists 26 current conservation research projects that are either planned or under way in Canberra alone, and asks to hear about projects in other parts of the country. Readers are asked to contact Colin Pearson, the Australian Coordinator for the ICCROM International Conservation Research Index.
The first edition of the ICCROM index has been published only recently. The information for this country was gathered by questionnaire. There is no coordinator for the U.S.
Some of the projects listed for Canberra are:
At the National Library of Australia:
At Australian Archives:
At Australian War Memorial:
At Canberra College of Advanced Education:
