Book and Archive Conservation Services Limited specialises in the treatment of rare books. We work in a fully equipped and secure workshop which is situated in the Edinburgh University Library.
We document every item’s condition using digital photography and a written report before treatment. We then record the treatment, techniques and all materials used.
The principal conservator is accredited since 2003 and all our work is carried out to standards that are defined and upheld by the Professional Accreditation for Conservator-Restorers scheme.
We use reversible techniques and conservation grade materials.
