Amidst the wandering around in an overwhelmed daze – in a good way – at the British Library, there was a dot on the floor with British Library Centre for Conservation and an arrow pointing thataway. I followed it out onto and across a lovely rooftop terrace to the Centre. Alas I was not there on the right day for a tour, but they had a well done display about the ins-and-outs of conservation – the factors to consider, materials and processes, as well as examples from the Library’s collections. Very informative and well presented, and neat to see some of the behind the scenes magic. More stories in their blog.
