Conserve-O-Grams are short, focused leaflets about caring for and conserving museum objects issued by the National Park Service. Theserieswas introduced in 1993 to offer information about the most up-to-date museum standards and best practices. New topics are added as needed and out-of-date issues are periodically revised or deleted.
Conserve-O-Grams benefit both experienced and inexperienced museum curators and others responsible for the care and use of museum collections. The Conserve-O-grams relate to the conservation and preservation of objects such as fine arts, furniture, ceramics, glass, leatherwork, books and papers, and new techniques, materials or technologies involved in conservation.
