Preparing for Archives Accreditation

Conservation (or "Collection Care") is an essential element of Accreditation of Archives and Museums.  NCS has developed a service aimed at helping you prepare for Accreditation by identifying and pulling together the documentation you will need to show that you meet the standards.
