Conserve O Grams are short, focused leaflets about caring for museum objects, now available online. With the introduction and acceptance of new techniques and practices in museum collections preservation, broad policy documents may not provide the most current or detailed instruction required for the ongoing daily care of museum objects. Conserve O Gram technical leaflets are published to ensure up-to-date information is available and to guide and assist park staff in carrying out, in a professional manner, projects identified in collection management planning documents. New topics are added as needed and out-of-date issues are revised or deleted. Semiannual supplements will be issued for an indeterminate period.
