The most comprehensive sources of information on conservation chemistry
Conservation DistList
Since 1987, a steadily growing group of conservation people, including bench conservators, curators, scientists, and administrators, have been meeting on the Internet to share technical information, news, rumour-control etc relating to the conservation of museum, library, and archive information.
Conservation OnLine
CoOL, a project of the Preservation Department of Stanford University Libraries, is a full text library of conservation information, covering a wide spectrum of topics of interest to those involved with the conservation of library, archives and museum materials.
Conservation Science Network
You can find information on forthcoming conferences and events, access technical reports of conservation projects from major galleries and museums, use the direct links to access other conservation web sites quickly and even "chat" with other people from the world of conservation in the discussion forum.
Conservation Information Network
An international collaboration, the Conservation Information Network (CIN) provides information on the conservation and restoration of cultural property. The Bibliographic Database of the Conservation Information Network (BCIN) provides access to over 190,000 bibliographic citations for conservation literature.
