Conservation and Conservators

AIC-CERT staffs a 24-hour assistance number for Emergency Conservation (202) 661-8068.  They have created teams to respond regionally to collections conservation emergencies.

For additional conservators, the American Institute for Conservation (AIC) provides a website to search by region and by specialty http://www.conservation-us.org/.  See “Find a Conservator.”

Note: The complete AIC directory lists over 40 conservators in Colorado. The “Find a Conservator” function posts only a selection from the entire list.
