    PACIN presents this article in support of the Mountmakers Forum. In doing so we seek to promote the appreciation of this important discipline within the field of preventive conservation. Mountmaking plays an important role in the safe handling, display, transport and storage of the artifacts that we care for. Please plan on attending the next Mountmakers Forum slated for 2012 (details will be provided as they become available) and in the mean time please take part in the discussions found here in the Mountmaking section of the PACIN Forum as well as in the Mountmakers Forum web-group. A link to view streaming footage of the Forum can be found at the end of the article.
