The Library has recently carried out a series of innovations that provide a much wider range of research resources in heritage conservation. Some resources are accessible to our Rome-based Library visitors, while others are available to all our virtual users, no matter where they are in the world.
We have just upgraded to a new version of the Library Catalogue, which features an attractive new design and a New Acquisitions link. In addition to providing a search screen for the ICCROM Library holdings, the catalogue interface links to online resources, both conservation-related and of general interest to the field, that give access to hundreds of thousands of online documents.
These links include the popular Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ) and Directory of Open Access Books (DOAB), the UNESDOC portal, the Europeana portal of digitized European heritage, ICOMOS Open Archive with over 1000 documents, the Getty Research Portal with over 100 000 scanned titles, OpenDOAR which links to over 3000 academic Open Access repositories, and many more. Access to multilingual texts is ensured through sites such as the Canadian Conservation Institute (CCI) with its bilingual English-French resources, HAL Archives Ouvertes and OCIM with their resources in French, ILAM Docs with its resources in Spanish, DAR at the Bibliotheca Alexandrina in Egypt with full-text resources in Arabic, and much more. We invite you to explore! Continue reading…
On 25 March a group of seven students from the School of ICRCPAL (Istituto Centrale per il Restauro e la Conservazione del Patrimonio Archivistico e Librario) visited the Archives and Library. They were accompanied by Ms Barbara Cattaneo, conservator at the Biblioteca Nazionale Centrale di Firenze and former participant of the Japanese Paper Conservation Course.
As the group is mainly interested in the conservation of photographic material, the visit focused mainly on ICCROM’s photographic collection in the Archives and the management and conservation issues that this collection encounters.
