A consultation service is available offering advice on the preservation of collections. Surveys can provide advice on various issues including storage, pest-management, and environmental conditions. In addition, priorities for interventive treatments can be identified.
Case Study: The Shakespeare Memorial Library.
Arthur recently conducted a conservation survey of the Library of Birmingham’s Shakespeare Memorial Library as part of the Everything to Everyone project. The Shakespeare collection was founded in 1868 by Social reformer George Dawson; it boasts items in 93 languages, and was the first great public Shakespeare Library in the world.
