CCI videos deal with topics of interest to those who care for cultural objects as well as those with a general interest in the activities taking place at CCI. The videos not only offer practical advice about issues and questions related to the care, handling and storage of cultural objects, but also offer a behind-the-scenes look at select conservation treatments, in a captive, digital format. Check back often for additions to this ever-expanding video series.
