Conservation is a growing field, and the American Institute for Conservation of Historic & Artistic Works (AIC) is a good place to learn more about this discipline, and to also learn about possible job opportunities. First-time visitors should look at the "About" area to learn more about what the Institute does. Within this area, users can read such timely documents as "Defining the Conservator: Essential Competencies" and "Definitions of Conservation Terminology." Beyond this area, the site also contains information about the different specialty groups within the AIC, their committees, and their online library. The online documents here include previous volumes of the Journal of the American Institute for Conservation and materials designed to help those who need to recover and restore documents after disasters strike.
