Selecting locally accessible materials for use in preventive conservation

Employing adequate materials is essential for the success and sustainability of conservation strategies. This is particularly important when working in challenging contexts, in which resources are very limited and specialised materials unavailable.

This work aims to identify the major issues linked to selecting locally accessible conservation materials, and to discuss practical measures to overcome them.
