Caring for the world's knowledge
The British Library leads and collaborates in growing the world's knowledge base. We have signed a major partnership to make thousands of digitised historic documents and ancient manuscripts relating to centuries of history of the Gulf available online to researchers, scholars and the general public across the Gulf region and around the world. The Collection Care department, which comprises some 40 people, is responsible for the care of one of the largest, richest and most diverse research collections in the world.
The two day intensive course will provide emerging and established conservation professionals with theoretical and practical foundations for understanding the use of nanocellulose films for conservation. These films are ideal for repairing transparent and translucent supports - they are nearly transparent under transmitted light and have excellent mechanical and ageing characteristics. For further details, see the recent article in The Journal of Paper Conservation, 2017 vol 18, no. 1, p 18-21.
