Trinity Library has a selection of books on art conservation, including conservation of contemporary art. These can all be found in the library book catalog by entering search term "art conservation" and selecting "subject browse." This produces a list of subject terms related to the topic, including "Art -- Conservation and restoration" with 18 titles, and "Art Conservation and restoration Periodicals" also with 18 titles. Simply click on a topic of your choosing to go to a list of the titles we own in print and electronic formats.
Also, art exhibition catalogs and other books about artists often include sections on conservation of their works. Wadsworth Atheneum, for example, has published exhibition catalogs with discussion of artist techniques and conservation of certain works. Among them are catalogs authored by Ulrich Birkmaier or Stephen Kornhauser, conservators at the Atheneum who have contributed essays on conservation, such as to the exhibition catalog for a Marsden Harley exhibition at the Atheneum.
