Manuscript Conservation Partner Centres (MCPC-s)

    In order to facilitate and provide assistance to institutions with large holdings of manuscripts, the Mission nominates such institutions as Manuscript Conservation Partner Centres (MCPC-s). These institutions are provided conservation assistance through the MCC-s. Under this programme, each MCC nominates 10 institutions as MCPC-s. The MCPC-s are provided with advice on storage and maintenance of their collections in a scientific manner. The Mission also provides conservation and storage material (acid–free board, acid–free paper, etc) for storage of important manuscripts in these collections. Preventive and curative work on the manuscripts where required is also undertaken by MCC-s. At present, more than 200 institutions are associated with the Mission as MCPC-s.
