Founded in 1973, NEDCC is the first independent conservation laboratory in the United States to specialize exclusively in treating collections made of paper or parchment, such as works of art, books, photographs, maps, manuscripts, etc. NEDCC is incorporated as a nonprofit in order to provide its services at cost to collecting institutions. Its mission is to improve the conservation efforts of libraries, archives, historical organizations, museums, and other repositories; to provide the highest quality services to institutions that lack in-house conservation and reformatting facilities or those that seek specialized expertise; and to provide leadership in the preservation, conservation, and imaging fields. Its services include book, paper, and photograph conservation; digital reformatting; audio preservation; surveys and consultations; disaster assistance; and workshops and conferences. NEDCC is located in a renovated historic mill building in Andover, Mass., twenty-five miles north of Boston. For more information, please visit www.nedcc.org.
