Care of Collections offers advice on issues such as ethics, environmental control inside buildings, light, storage, packing and transport. It also offers instructions for dealing with problems associated with specific types of cultural material commonly found in Indigenous cultural centres such as feathered material and bark paintings. The instructions, together with photographs and diagrams, are helpful for readers who want to gain a better understanding of conservation issues through practical issues rather than theoretical ones. The photographs illustrate many of the common problems that occur and are especially good on the topic of storag.
