Online Publication of Care and Conservation of Natural History Collections

Care and Conservation

In January 2014, we made the full text of Carter and Walker's 1999 book, "Care and Conservation of Natural History Collections" freely available online via our website. All chapters are now free to download and hosted by NatSCA all with permission from the copyright holders, publishers and all contributors.

This out-of-print book is a valuable resource for curators, but has been extremely difficult to obtain until now. We hope it will prove a useful resource! The online publication followed a lengthy process of ensuring copyright permissions and countless efforts of NatSCA members and wonderful volunteers who helped in the process, including scanning these pages for your reference and we would like to thank all those who helped make this possible.

You can now access these chapters via
