Did you know that the State Library offers free information guides to help you care for and conserve your books, newspapers, artworks, paper documents and photographs? These guides cover topics from pests and mould to storage and framing. So if you have historic items at home that you need help protecting, check out our range of conservation guides, all of which contain expert advise from our in-house conservators.
If you need further advice – on privately held materials or public collections – call the Library’s conservation inquiry line on 03 8664 7359 or toll-free on 1800 999 735, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
