A letter from Sheridan Burke, ICOMOS ISC20c President

ICOMOS ISC20C Heritage Toolkit

A web-based toolkit of reference resources for conserving the Heritage of the Twentieth Century

This on-line reference collection of benchmark “best practice” documents is being progressively assembled by and for members of the ICOMOS ISC20C. The entries identify the range of work being done world-wide to simultaneously advance the development of heritage principles and technical research that is worth sharing to assist the conservation of Twentieth Century heritage.  

The ISC20C toolkit aims to share new methodologies and approaches to conservation practice, by providing access to information and sources that its own members find useful. All ISC20C members are invited to share up to 10 benchmark heritage tools (guidelines, policies, publications, websites) that they professionally  use regularly as reference resources - with a brief summary and a hyperlink or PDF where practical (and legal) to make them electronically accessible to everyone.

NOTE: The following thematic classification, under which the benchmark “best practice” documents have been sorted, has been developed using the Getty Conservation Institute  publication “Conserving Twentieth-Century Built Heritage: A Bibliography” as an organizing framework.

Contributions from all ISC20C members in every language are welcome.   Sheridan Burke, ICOMOS ISC20C President
