Glueing

Correct packaging, mounting and handling procedures reduce risk of damage during movement and display and conservators frequently act as couriers when V&A objects are loaned to other institutions. These aspects of conservation work are known as 'preventive' conservation. They include activities such as controlling the Museum environment (e.g. temperature and light) and preventing pests (insects) entering the Museum. This type of conservation helps to slow down rates of deterioration.
