ABOUT CONFERENCE

MAIN CONFERENCE TOPIC:

The Restoration & Conservation 2017 International Conference

From 20th to 22nd April 2017, there will be a start-up conference “The Modern Approaches in Book and Paper Restoration & Conservation” in Lviv, Ukraine.

This is an International Conference with aims to bring together librarians, archivists, conservators,  restorers, collection managers and many more professionals in the field of book, musical notes and paper restoration-conservation who fight for the safeguarding and maintenance of our cultural book- and paper-heritage from all over Europe and even further countries. There will be speakers from different countries.

The main question the conference puts forward is: what is needed to preserve our heritage? From the papers handed in, one can already see the variety of problems ranging from conservation theories, to the use of materials which are still not available but are on the wish list, and to further education.

We invite companies and individuals to support this conference, reaching more than 300 librarians, archivists and industry professionals. We value you as partners as we work together to meet the needs of our clients and institutions.
