COVID-19 and recommendations for heritage institutions
Cultural heritage institutions are coping with many challenges as the world deals with the COVID-19 pandemic. While collections are not directly at risk, the pandemic complicates their care. A new resource, Caring for Heritage Collections during the COVID-19 Pandemic, was developed by an ad-hoc task force at the Canadian Conservation Institute (CCI) to help staff from heritage institutions ensure that collections and heritage materials remain safe. This resource is based on the questions received from collections professionals in various countries and types of institutions.
The Canadian Conservation Institute (CCI) supports Canada's heritage community in preserving Canada's heritage collections so they can be accessed by current and future generations.
