Conservators of all disciplines will be happy to learn that David Pinniger has recently donated his extensive article/offprint collection to the Chantry Library. Most readers will be familiar with Pinniger and Thompson-Webb’s interactive website ‘What’s Eating Your Collection’ and its extensive database of references on pest management, monitoring and trapping, treatment, strategy, and collections/environment. This reference collection is comprehensive and brings together many obscure publications, some anonymous, and others dating back to the beginnings of IPM. The donation includes a small collection of monographs not held by Chantry which have already been catalogued and are listed below. We hope to obtain funding to catalogue the article collection and in the near future we hope it will be possible to consult this fantastic collection of reference material.
