Preface

Museum conservation practices shifted in approaches and goals during the last century, especially in the last 30 years. Some changes were the result of a maturing of the field. Others were a consequence of changes in museums themselves, including growing professionalism among staff; redefinitions of museums and their roles and responsibilities; and the impact of political, cultural, and economic pressures on museum management. National and international museum and conservation organizations, as well as professional training programs, were influential in this process. Equally important has been the development of preventive conservation, with a collections-based orientation supporting the mission and goals of the museum.

Historically museum conservation centered in the larger institutions and emphasized restoration techniques and the application of scientific methods to the examination of objects and the identification of materials. Museum publications disseminated conservation information, and annual reports discussed treatment and research, which focused on the fine arts and classical archaeology. Natural history, ethnographic, and historical collections usually were prepared by the collector/scientist/curator or assistants, or they were not treated at all, except with pesticides. Exceptions were items for exhibition, in which case exhibit staff would clean, restore, and sometimes repaint them. This traditional approach to the preservation of collections has gradually changed in many institutions throughout the world; in others, restoration and exhibition practices remain the same.

hile the last decade has been challenging for museum conservation, even more challenges lie ahead. What really constitutes a museum today? Certainly it is not what we thought of at the beginning of the century, or even 30 years ago. As museums struggle with evolving and often mandated roles as businesses rather than institutes of higher education or research, and as entertainment centers rather than collection repositories, many traditional conservation approaches are outdated. To be effective, conservation strategies must consider the museum's changing objectives.

In a time when the museum emphasis is on short-term goals, conservation professionals must make special efforts to redirect focus to long-term museum preservation responsibilities for the collections held in trust. New conservation paradigms need to be developed and new skill sets acquired in management, organization, and planning. We should reassess in this Book how conservators operate in museums and the methods by which conservators, scientists, administrators, and other museum professionals are trained. Creative funding strategies must be developed to support conservation staffs to maintain the collections, carry out treatments, conduct research, and oversee a variety of collection care activities, providing continuity and upholding standards. It is essential to develop partnerships with different kinds of organizations to join in this responsibility, and to leverage precious resources. Fundamental as well is continuing to share conservation strategies that can be modified and accepted by other museums, within their own cultural, political, and economic climate, in order to sustain their capabilities in the 21st century.
