There is close collaboration between the Special Collections Librarian and the staff and students within Conservation in the School of History and Heritage.
Assistance and advice are invaluable with historic collections and the following are some examples:-

Lincoln is home to the largest centre for conservation and restoration study in the UK and, with more than 40 years’ experience, is a leading authority in the field.
