The Highland Archive Service Conservation Studio has been involved in the first phase of a collaborative project with the Book and Paper Studio in Dundee to provide conservation treatment for a large number of volumes of assessed tax rolls. The Studio has been working to an estimate that was produced by the Book and Paper Studio’s conservator.

Before the beginning of the project, the Highland Archive Service Conservation Studio consulted with the Book and Paper Studio, and Richard Aitken from visited Aberdeen City and Aberdeenshire Archives in order to inspect the collection against the estimate of the work required. Throughout the project Richard has remained in regular contact with us about progress and extra costs incurred due to some additional spine treatment required that only became apparent once the binding of several volumes was fully unpicked (i.e. it could not have been foreseen).

We have been extremely happy with the work done by the Highland Archive Service Conservation Studio to make the volumes involved in the first part of the project accessible again, and look forward to using its services again on subsequent phases.
