Book and Paper Specialty Group (BPG) Home Page

The Book and Paper Group Wiki is a forum for members and practitioners to learn about topics in book and paper conservation, share their expertise with colleagues, and discuss emerging trends in the field, most notably through the Book Conservation Wiki and Paper Conservation Catalog (PCC). Like all wikis, the site's contents are collaborative and dynamic works-in-progress. This particular page is maintained by the BPG Wiki Coordinators, Katherine Kelly and Denise Stockman.
