NatSCA is hosting a one-day conference dedicated to conservation and its role in advancing the care of specimens, objects and archives that form our natural science collections. Often considered to be a very specific subject area, in reality this field is highly diverse. Natural science conservation deals with a huge range of collections and materials, preserving the bio- and geo-diversity of our world, along with the associated archives, objects and stories linked to these collections. Join us for this great opportunity to explore recent projects, discuss developments in new methodologies and meet others whose jobs involve the care and conservation of collections.

‘Call for papers’ open. Deadline 8th July 2018. Download the call for papers information here.
