Book and Paper Group Officers


Committee Description

The Book and Paper Group (BPG) is the largest of the specialty groups within the American Institute for Conservation. Its more than 900 members represent a wide variety of backgrounds and specialties but share a common interest in the preservation and conservation of artifacts and collections of paper-based materials. Various informal "subspecialities" focus on areas of specific expertise such as fine art on paper, books, archives, and libraries.
