Conserving the archive
Supervising conservator Dominique Moussou talks through her work and some of the projects underway in the MHNSW conservation lab
Based at the Western Sydney Records Centre, the NSW State Archives Collection documents the daily work of the NSW Government and its agencies from 1788 to today. For many researchers and historians, accessing the collection can be a critical part of their work.
There are many fragile records that have not yet been digitised, so providing physical access sometimes requires work from one of MHNSW’s specialist conservators. In this video, supervising conservator Dominique Moussou talks through her work and some of the projects the team are undertaking in the lab.
