avatar for Collection Care Network

Collection Care Network

AIC's Collection Care Network (CCN) was created in recognition of “the critical importance of preventive conservation as the most effective means of promoting the long-term preservation of cultural property” (from Guidelines for Practice of the American Institute for Conservation of Historic & Artistic Works, #20) and to support the growing number of conservators and collection care professionals with strong preventive responsibilities and interests. The CCN has and is working on a number of projects that will support the practice of collection care.

The charge of the network is to: create awareness of preventive care; identify and develop standards and best practices, training, and other projects to advance preventive care in institutions of all types and sizes, locally, nationally, and globally; provide resources to support collection care and conservation professionals; work with related groups to reach and support key collections care constituents
