You should plan on taking a college preparatory course load
while in high school. Classes such as history, literature, art,
foreign languages, chemistry, and mathematics will all help you
build a strong background for book conservation. By studying
history, you can learn the social and historical contexts of books
and knowledge. Understanding the history of an item can give you a
better perspective on approaching the material as a conservator.
Strong knowledge of literature can help you appraise the potential
value of a book. A comprehension of foreign languages allows you to
deal with a wider variety of books from around the globe. Chemistry
and math will begin to teach you about the composition and
measurement of the materials you will be using. Art will teach you
how to use your hands to create beautiful works that last.
