The workshop will be run twice, so attendees should sign up either for the morning or the afternoon.
This workshop will show how risk management approaches can be used to inform and support collection care decisions, including conservation treatments, preservation policies and loan requests, and will provide practical advice on using and developing these methods.
The workshop will be delivered by Dr Paul Garside.
