We are specialists in the preservation and stabilisation of large scale on-site Library
collections. Teams of conservators are brought together to work in a methodical manner
to achieve substantial through-put of work whilst maintaining the highest quality
of workmanship.Due to the extensive knowledge gained in museums,
galleries and historic houses over the last 20 years, we are able to extract work
requiring more in-depth treatment and make proposals for further work whilst on site.
On site work includes;
Collection surveys and condition assessments
Prioritising to enable targeted funding
Books are cleaned, repaired and stabilised in situ
Secondary supports are tailor-made to the collection
Proposals are made for further projects
Advice on environmental conditions, after care treatment and handling
This programme has proven the most cost effective way to treat large scale book collections
and is regularly implemented in country house libraries in the UK and abroad.
