Donation of textile conservation material

The Chantry Library was recently very grateful to receive a generous donation from Nicola Gentle. This comprised conference proceedings and other matter, mainly on the conservation of textiles. As well as filling some gaps in our collection of conference proceedings (always fun for librarians to catalogue!) they also add depth to our coverage of this interesting area of conservation work. The titles are being catalogued onto SOLO, so that they can searched for there like the rest of our printed collections (choose ‘Chantry Library’ from the drop-down list), but here is a quick listing of some English titles:

  • Guidelines for Conservation of Textiles, EH 1996
  • In the Nick of Time, Museums and Galleries 1996
  • Adhesive Treatments Revisited, UKIC Textile Group 1998
  • Conservation of Leather Artifacts, Leather Conservation Centre 2000
  • Ecclesiastical Textiles, conservation issues, Council for Care of Churches 2001
  • Dress in Detail, ICON Textile Group 2007
  • Conservation of 3D Textiles, NATCC 2009
  • Joined Up Thinking, Textiles & Historic Interior, ICON Textile Group 2014 (CD)
  • Learning Curve, ICON Textile Group 2015 (CD)

There are also international conference proceedings and journal numbers (many in languages other than English), reflecting even more within the Chantry Library’s holdings the global scope and favour of the conservation profession! So a very sincere thank you to Nicola for the gift.
