The Chantry Library holds a wide selection of monographs, periodicals (both current and historic) and conference proceedings covering a variety of disciplines. Given the history of the library (i.e. formerly the library of the IPC) it is perhaps unsurprising that one of its greatest strengths is its collections relating to paper conservation. However, new sections are being developed in line with Icon special interest groups, aiming to engage a wider audience. The library now has a Collection Development Policy which outlines the collection and acquisition aims in more detail. 

The librarian is keen to hear from anyone who would like to suggest a resource for the library. Please get in touch using any of the methods shown on our Contacts page.
