2020 Vision: Current and Future Research in Cultural Heritage Preservation

December 2020 will mark the 35th anniversary of the founding of the Image Permanence Institute. In honor of this milestone, IPI is hosting a scholarly symposium and workshop opportunities at the Rochester Institute of Technology. Papers will be solicited that may include, but are not limited to, image stability and the preservation of photographic materials, materials testing and standards work, sustainable environmental management in collections spaces, and innovations in preventive conservation. The content will appeal to archivists, collection managers, conservators, facilities administrators, librarians, preservation researchers, and others associated with the stewardship of cultural heritage collections.
