Conservation at the Museums Victoria Library

Ever wondered about the work that goes on behind the scenes to protect our rare books?

From 2012 to 2016 an in-depth conservation survey was conducted of our Rare Book Collection.

Join our paper conservator to hear about the survey, results, key learnings, and how the findings can be used to improve collection care. The library will display some beautiful items from their little-known Rare Book Collection. 

Speakers: Belinda Gourley Conservator (Paper, Images and Audio Visual) and Gemma Steele (Librarian)
