The Cochineal Repository for Conservation and Preservation Research

This electronic repository contains research papers created by Kilgarlin Center students during the course of their study. The repository is primarily meant to be a resource for past, present, and future conservator and preservation administrator students.

Authors who choose to submit to the repository grant the Kilgarlin Center a limited license to display their work. The repository does not have an editorial review process; it is expected that authors will represent themselves and the repository well by proofreading their own work. Papers from the repository are available online in three formats: as cross-platform PDF, txt, and html files on the The Cochineal website. To best preserve this resource, the work from the Cochineal repository has begun to be archived in the School of Information Institutional Repository.

In May, 2007 the static repository was transformed into a searchable database.
