Support ICOMOS Documentation Centre!

Non profit organization, ICOMOS strives like many NGOs to offer a good service with few material means. A documentation centre is not, by intrinsic nature, a profitable institution. Although in-depth research and quality documentation are essential to any restoration/conservation project, they are not quantifiable in terms of benefits.  Documentary resources thus get cut when budgetary restrictions are required.

One after the other, documentation centres of international organizations centres close their doors for financial reasons (UNESCO cultural sector, ICOM...).

Help us maintain a resourceful collection and a good information service, for the sake of cultural heritage protection!
