Well, it's taken a while for various commercial reasons, but here we are, the first of my scribblings for ACPi.
My background is varied and includes preservation, archiving and conservation, (and microfilm, and document management,) so I guess that's why they invited me to write this column for free!
Who am I? Well obviously my name is not really MUSTY, so it is for me to know and you lot to find out.
Normally the column would appear in the magazine but we wanted something interesting to say her and now, whilst the techs beaver away in the background building the ACPi web site.
We will be published too, at least digitally we will be. Our associate publication IDMi Magazine is doing a special on us in December so we will at least be in print then. Normally we will be a bi-monthly, digital-only, controlled-circulation, browser-friendly, periodical. ACPi will cover, (you will not be surprised to read,) Archiving, Conservation, Preservation, and also Restoration. Not THE Restoration in the historical events sense of the word, but Restoration of, well, anything really apparently.
Despite my nickname, Ed and I are alike in that we want to make ACPi an interesting and lively tome, so although in terms of personal appearance we might LOOK old-fashioned, we are really lean, mean*, lithe, lissom, and spirited young-guns underneath. [Are you trying to break some sort of record for the use of hyphenated double-words? Ed.]
* That's our Scottish-ness showing through.
Anyway, enough scribblings from me for now. The Ed(master) wants the PC to do his bit on the right, so Cheerio from me - see you in IDMi in December. :-)

The MUSTY 'Recommended Read'
Conservation Treatment Methodology describes a systematic approach
to decision-making for conservation treatments of all kinds of
cultural property. Illustrated with numerous examples, the book
explains how the history of an object and the meaning it holds for
its owner or custodian contribute to determining its proper
treatment. Conservation Treatment Methodology is an essential tool
for conservators, historic preservation specialists, and art
historians. Non-technical readers including art collectors and
appraisers have described it as useful and an easy read.
Thank you for
