Purpose and Principles

The Collections department works to advance the conservation practice of movable heritage. Through our research, training activities, and work in the field, we aim to engage, inform, and connect practitioners responsible for public and private collections of all sizes and in all settings across cultures and geographic regions. Guided by a pragmatic and context-based approach, the Collections department develops and applies new research and technical advances to serve diverse collection typologies, institutional settings, and resource levels.
