Chantry Library Journals PDF Print E-mail

The Chantry Library holds a range of journal publication relating to conservation. We actively subscribe to many recognised heritage conservation serials, but some of our collections are historic, with subscriptions discontinued by choice or where publication has ceased. We retain back issues of discontinued journals that remain relevant to our users, or where a journal is unavailable elsewhere within the UK.

An alphabetic list of the library's journal holdings can be found below. Icon publications are denoted by the * symbol. Click on a letter in the grid below to move directly to titles beginning with that letter.
