Book Conservators

Outlook

Employment for museum conservators and technicians (including book conservators) is expected to grow about as fast as the average for all careers through 2024, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. There is strong competition for jobs because the field is so small and many people are interested in entering this profession. Book conservators who are graduates of conservation programs and who are willing to relocate should have the best opportunities for employment. Those who can use their conservation skills in tandem with other abilities may also find more job openings. Book conservators with an artistic bent, for instance, could bring their conservation skills to an exhibition program at an art museum. Conservators who enjoy public contact could use their practical experience to teach classes in conservation techniques.
