"Conservation module: conservator outreach with project documentation
"You are able to post conservation projects or conservator profiles free of charge as we are in beta. Conservators will never be charged for our service. Conservation agencies will be charged upon completion of our beta. Small and large conservation projects are organized so the conservation agency can search, view and notify conservators by region, project and conservator name in real time. We also have an artist outreach service and our patent pending conservation services are the only services of this kind in the world."
