CCI Publications


Technical Bulletins

The Canadian Conservation Institute (CCI) has published more than 30 Technical Bulletins to assist heritage professionals and institutions in the care and preservation of their objects and collections. Since these Bulletins contain useful and relevant information for conservation practices, research or reference, we are pleased to provide a majority of them on our website for free. Please note that some titles have been retired and are no longer available due to outdated content.

CCI continues to publish Technical Bulletins for print publication and will make new ones available for purchase as print copies for the first 5 years after publication. Following that time, they will be added to this online resource as free content. The Technical Bulletins are considered archived material only because they are not subject to the Government of Canada Web Standards. To request an alternate format, please contact CCI.
