The New Orleans Charter is the product resulting from the two symposia: Museums in Historic Buildings held in Montreal, Quebec (1990) and New Orleans, Louisiana (1991) and How To Restore Water Damaged Archive Photos co-sponsored by the American Institute for Conservation of Historic and Artistic Works (AIC) and The Association for Preservation Technology International. 

This Charter has been officially adopted by the Board of How To Restore Water Damaged Archive Photos Directors of both AIC and APTI. The New Orleans Charter was subsequently adopted by the National Conference of State Historic Preservation Officers at its Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C. in March, 1992.

In 1992 this Charter was presented by a panel of symposium participants at a half-dozen conferences. American Institute for Conservation, Buffalo, June 1992, American Association of State and Local History, Miami, Sept 1992, International Council of How To Restore Water Damaged Archive Photos Museums, Sept 1992, Association for Preservation Technology, Philadelphia, Sept 1992.

Joint meeting of the Mid-Atlantic Association of Museums/New EnglandMuseum Association, Albany, Nov 1992, APT Communiqué 21(2): May 1992 The New Orleans Charter How To Restore Water Damaged Archive Photos from a concern for the coexistence of historic structures and the artifacts housed within them; Recognizing our responsibility as stewards to provide the highest levels of care for the structures and other artifacts placed in our care.

Recognizing that many significant structures are used to house, display and interpret artifacts; Recognizing that historic structures and the contents placed within them deserve equal How To Restore Water Damaged Archive Photos consideration in planning for their care; Recognizing that technologies and approaches will continue to change; and Recognizing that those involved in preservation are part of a continuum, and are neither the first nor the last to affect the preservation of historic structures and How To Restore Water Damaged Archive Photos artifacts; 

We, therefore, adopt these How To Restore Water Damaged Archive Photos principles as governing the preservation of historic structures and the artifacts housed in them: 1. Institutions' statements of mission should recognize the need to preserve the unique character of both the historic structure and artifacts. 

The preservation needs of the historic structure and of the artifacts should be defined only after study adequate to serve as the How To Restore Water Damaged Archive Photos foundation for the preservation of both. 3. Requisite levels of care should be established through the interdisciplinary collaboration of all qualified professionals with potential to contribute. 

Appropriate preservation must reflect application of recognized preservation practices, including assessment of risk before and after intervention, and the expectation of future intervention. 5. Measures which promote the preservation of either the historic structure or the artifacts, at the expense of the other How To Restore Water Damaged Archive Photos, should not be considered.

Regarding public use, the right of future generations to access and enjoyment must outweigh immediate How To Restore Water Damaged Archive Photos needs. 7. Appropriate preservation strategies should be guided by the specific needs and characteristics of the historic structure and artifacts. 8. Appropriate documentation of all stages of a project is essential, and should be readily accessible and preserved for the future. 

The most appropriate action in a particular case is one which attains the desired goal with the least intervention to the historic structure and the artifacts. 10. Proposed preservation strategies should be appropriate to the ability of the institution to How To Restore Water Damaged Archive Photos implement and maintain them. 

The AIC is indebted to the numerous museum professionals, directors among them, who provided invaluable review of this document. Gratitude also goes to four senior conservators who pooled their considerable knowledge and expertise to create this How To Restore Water Damaged Archive Photos paper: 

Lucy Commoner (Textile Conservator, Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum), Betsy Palmer Eldridge (Book and Paper How To Restore Water Damaged Archive Photos Conservator in private practice), Pamela Hatchfield (Objects Conservator, Boston Museum of Fine Arts), and Jay Krueger (Conservator of Modern Paintings, National Gallery of Art).

Their work and insights are exemplary and their commitment typical of a profession dedicated to saving our cultural treasures for the How To Restore Water Damaged Archive Photos future. AIC/FAIC, June 2002 12. "The Association of Art Museum Directors compliments the American Institute for Conservation on its Position Paper on Conservation in Collecting Institutions. 

Conservation of works of art in museums is a prime responsibility of a museum and the Position Paper provides clear guidelines for all collecting institutions to preserve artistic and How To Restore Water Damaged Archive Photos historic heritage." Mimi Gaudieri, Executive Director, Association of Art Museum How To Restore Water Damaged Archive Photos Directors 

In the field of state and local history, most collecting organizations do not enjoy the resources necessary to hire a conservation staff. But it is imperative that conservation and preservation stay at the forefront of planning for the long-term, for collecting institutions of all sizes. AIC's position paper sets How To Restore Water Damaged Archive Photos ideal goals which will hopefully encourage collecting institutions to continue to do more." 

Terry C. Davis, Executive Director and CEO, The American Association for State and Local History (AASLH) 16. "AIC's position is a much needed and comprehensive guide to collections care responsibilities. The benefits are of immeasurable value for institutions and those they serve. By using the AIC guidelines in fundraising efforts collecting institutions can demonstrate a commitment to professional standards that assure best How To Restore Water Damaged Archive Photos practices are being followed." 

Lawrence L. Reger, President, Heritage Preservation 18. "The Registrars Committee of the American Association of How To Restore Water Damaged Archive Photos Museums, supports the AIC position on "Conservation and Preservation in Collecting Institutions." Registrars often man the front line in collections care, especially in those institutions without a permanent conservation staff, and in all cases must consider preservation of objects and works of art the highest of priorities. 

The AIC position paper touches on the most important areas of risk management for collections and provides a How To Restore Water Damaged Archive Photos checklist and guide that can be used by the collections profession." 19. Rebecca A. Buck, Chair, RC-AAM 

AIC's Position Paper provides a clear reminder of basic responsibilities for long-term stewardship of museum collections. The paper is consistent with the federal government's directives concerning the management of its heritage assets, including collections of How To Restore Water Damaged Archive Photos scientific, historic, and artistic objects. 

This is a useful reminder for How To Restore Water Damaged Archive Photos agencies and institutions within parent organizations that have primary goals other than management of museum collections." 21. Debra E. Sonderman, Director, Office of Acquisition and Property Management, Department of the Interior 

"Collections are critical to advancing a museum's mission and serving the public as a place of learning, but only if they remain viable and accessible. This document will help collecting museums of all sizes and types stay aware of conservation How To Restore Water Damaged Archive Photos issues and best practices, while allowing each to scale the guidelines to their unique collection needs and available resources. 

This document is also a valuable resource for museums and peer reviewers participating in the Museum Assessment Program, particularly the Collections Assessment, and complements the Accreditation Commission's Expectations Regarding Collections How To Restore Water Damaged Archive Photos Stewardship.
