Photographic Materials Group Wiki


The Photographic Materials Group Wiki (PMG Wiki) is a publication of the Photographic Materials Specialty Group of the American Institute for Conservation. The PMG Wiki is an interactive and collaborative resource for conservators and conservation students to learn and share about topics in photograph conservation. It is a dynamic endeavor that aims to foster communication and connectivity through an active exchange of information on developing research and the current trends and needs of the field.
The history and development of the PMG Wiki and the Photographic Materials Conservation Catalogs, published before the existence of this online publication, are recorded here.
