book conservation



 The cons-dist list (an email list for conservators of all kinds) had an
interesting posting on a series of documents put out by the Conservation
Forum, a UK group, which is working on ways of defining the role and
standards for professional conservators, as well as a method of
accreditation.  The interesting thing is the way they recognize the
multiple ways people acquire training in their approach.  They don't try
to perscribe programs and contents, they focus on results, sort of a
"the proof is in the pudding" viewpoint, as opposed to a "how do you get
there" one.  The results they are looking for, however, are impressive.
