Conservators in Private Practice, Bookbinders and Library Binding

Please see the American Institute for Conservation’s Guidelines for selecting a conservator for important information about how to choose a conservator to work on your cultural artifacts as well as the Find a Conservator tool to find additional conservation professionals not listed below.

For Library Binding consider the services of a certified library bindery, list available through the Library Binding Institute.

We have listed some conservators in private practice below. While we have attempted to list multiple sources in Indiana, it is not always possible to find a private practitioner in a particular field. Some conservators in private practice will take work through the mail or travel and they are included in our list.
