With the support of the Getty Foundation, FAIC has created a series of self-paced modules that review key science principles in conservation.  The modules are designed to

help mid-career conservators refresh their knowledge
prepare participants for workshops on specific topics
assist students about to enter a graduate conservation program
Modules in the series:

Analytical Techniques
Arrhenius Equation
Redox Reactions
Refraction and Reflection
Relative Humidity
Safety in the Laboratory
Soaps, Surfactants, and Detergents
Teas Chart
Weights and Measures

The tutorials were researched and written by Sheila Fairbrass Siegler
Instructional Design by Cyrelle Gerson of Webucate Us
Project Management by Eric Pourchot
Special thanks to members of the Association of North American Graduate Programs in Conservation (ANAGPIC) and the AIC Board of Directors for reviewing these materials.
This project was conceived at a Directors Retreat organized by the Getty Conservation Institute and was developed with grant funding from the Getty Foundation."

belting - Learn about bookbinding and other book related topics

Questa è da provare quando faccio la prossima scatola. Il "belting the cloth" è una tecnica interessante anche se non faccio nella stessa maniera tutti i tagli. In pratica si monta tela e cartoni in contemporanea.

belting - Learn about bookbinding and other book related topics: "
There are many ways to build a box, one can cut the elements of the trays and assemble them prior to covering.
This method involves gluing the edges of the sides of the tray (we will call these the walls of the tray), taping these wall boards to the support board to keep them together while drying, letting dry a couple of hours, removing the tape and sometime sanding smooth.
After this, you can cover the trays with cloth, leather, paper or combinations of the above. If you have used this method, you know the pitfalls, like collapsing walls, slippery assemblies, bumpy lumps left by drying glue &c. &c.

When I use cloth, I prefer the "belting" method where the trays are assembled as the cloth is applied, thus eliminating several steps in a fail proof method, that is, if your boards are cut straight and square...
