In addition to these AIC-based resources many conservators are active in social media and create interesting blogs, twitter feeds, videos, and more. Museum, archive, and library conservation departments also share their work online. This content can serve as an introduction to conservation in general as well as provide insight into the opportunities and challenges our conservation professionals face on a regular basis.
