This is a guide for University staff and other clients to engage the services of the Conservation Lab at CUL.  Our goal is to direct you to the best expertise and most efficient way to meet your conservation needs, whether it's treatment, rehousing for storage and access, or consultation. If you need guidance, feel free to email  We have two related workflows for different kinds of materials, based on format, material composition, and treatment/housing requirements. For more detailed information, please see Conservation Materials WorkflowMixed collections (with a variety of formats) do not need to be separated.
