• Best materials reference resource currently online

    It is with great excitement and no small amount of embarrassment that I introduce (some of) you to this truly impressive resource.

    Preserv’Art was developed by the Centre de conservation du Québec (CCQ). It is an interactive database on products and equipment used in preventive conservation for the protection of works of art, artifacts and archival documents during an exhibition, transit or storage.
