The Book and Paper Group Wiki is a publication of the Book and Paper Specialty Group of the American Institute for Conservation.
The BPG Wiki is a forum for members and conservation practitioners to learn about topics in book and paper conservation and share their expertise and emerging trends in the field with colleagues.
When using the wiki, readers are strongly encouraged to consult the growing body of relevant literature. The Paper Conservation Catalog and the Book Conservation Wiki are publications of the Book and Paper Group of the American Institute for Conservation.
They are published as a convenience for the members of the Book and Paper Group.
Links have steadily grown between the BPG pages and the AIC Wiki pages maintained by other specialty groups.
The BPG Wiki is overseen by two volunteer Wiki Coordinators, one book and one paper, who report to the BPG Publications Committee chair.
This effort resulted in the Paper Conservation Catalog.
The PCC was published from 1984–1994 by the AIC Book and Paper Group, with assistance from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
This paper edition is available as a PDF facsimile.
A similar effort was begun for a Book Conservation Catalog and eighteen chapters of the BCC were developed, but they were never published in print format.
