Caring for paper collections in museums

Paper appears in museums and galleries in many ways, perhaps in the form of an ancient manuscript or a delicate watercolour painting. Paper could be stuck to other items or it could come in the form of a scroll or historic map.

Given the proliferation of the material, museum managers and curators need to think carefully about how to care for their paper collections and preserve them for future generations. This resource from Museums Galleries Scotland outlines guidance on caring for paper collections in museums.
