Understanding Parchment Manuscripts and Book Archaeology
17-18 Nov, 2012

Lecturer: Ines Correia

Archaeological approach to manuscripts has become an important
matter during conservation treatments, especially when we are
dealing with parchment codices and historical bookbindings full of
macroscopic evidences sometimes described as deterioration.

Production and reception marks are valuable contribution to build
documents uniqueness, to complement manuscripts studies and to
promote future disclosures and material preservation.


    In 1996 Ines Correia begun to work with paper and book
    conservation, first at the Lisbon National Library and the
    National Archive of Torre do Tombo. As conservator, developed
    several technical approaches, researches and practice with
    Incunabula, prints, paper and parchment manuscripts and
    historical bookbinding. She has been also responsible for
    specific training on preservation and conservation since 1999.
    In 1997 and 2001 Ines Correia was sponsored by the Portuguese
    Orient Foundation to make survey, research and training in
    preservation in Goa, India. In 2002 she had contacted with the
    Fez and Rabat librarians (Morocco) and attended to survey major
    problems about documents decay in order to elaborate a
    preservation priority plan; in 2007 integrated a working group
    to project a Conservation-Lab to serve Abu Dhabi Archives and
    participated in the Spring campaign to manuscript conservation
    in a Coptic Monastery (Egypt), supported by The Levantine
    Foundation. Since 2008, usually integrates conservation networks
    as technical consultant of Medieval Codex research and recovery.

    At the present time, she is a PhD Researcher and Senior Book
    Conservator from the Conservation Department at The National
    Archive - Torre do Tombo/Portugal.
