The Canadian Conservation Institute (CCI) provides resources on caring for heritage objects and collections to assist conservation professionals and those responsible for collections care. These resources range from general care to detailed procedures and guidance. For individuals, CCI also offers a list of resources containing information on salvaging personal valuables.

Caring for Objects and Collections

Many CCI publications formerly available only in print format, such as CCI Notes, CCI Symposia Proceedings and the majority of CCI Technical Bulletins, are now available online at no cost.

Our online tools can help you estimate the fading of colours exposed to light, simplify protective package design for fragile objects and calculate the amount of polyethylene glycol required to conserve waterlogged wood.
