Books we recommend and sell


Collections Caretaker was Northern States Conservation Center's quarterly publication. Now we are relaunching it as an e-Newsletter. Collections Caretaker emphasizes preservation of museum collections and museum studies, it covers topics of interest to large and small institutions of every type and description, including living history museums, art museums, natural history museums, historical societies and privately owned collections. Filled with practical information that you can apply to the care of your collection, the goal of Collections Caretaker is to keep you up to date on advances in the museum field and provide case studies of interesting collections care and museum studies solutions. It will keep you informed of useful workshops, publications and grant deadlines. Feel free to let us know what topics you would like to see featured in Collections Caretaker or even contribute an article. Contact the editor at

Library On-Line
The NSCC searchable catalog of our library holdings is now available. NSCC's library is non-lending. However, books and the research files are available for on-site research. You can hire our staff to find information for you on specific topics, if you are unable to visit us. Also, we hope that once you know certain titles exist, you can try getting them from other libraries through interlibrary loan.
