Caring for Collections : A Manual for Preventive Conservation (1999)

As part of its strategic plan 1997-2000 the Heritage Council identified the need to produce high quality information on aspects of heritage and also the need to assist people in improving their skills to care for and maintain our heritage. This publication aims to inform the general reader of the basic concepts of collection care and good housekeeping. It has also played a key role in the establishment of museum standards in Ireland.
