Another donation! Buildings conservation material

We are very pleased about *another* donation of material, this time of material relating to the conservation of the historic built environment.  It’s great to be able to extend our coverage in areas beyond our traditional strengths in book and paper conservation. The donation supplements our current holdings, filling out some partial series that were already present in the library, especially the “Short guides” and “Technical advice notes” produced by Historic Scotland. There are also some bilingual Welsh texts that should be interest to process. As a librarian it is always good to have fresh things to accession into the collection, and the Chantry Library is very grateful to donors who kindly enabled us to extend what we hold. Thank you!
