The world's leading conservation centers may introduce different approaches to the restoration and conservation however, they still share the common general principles. Our reality is full of examples when lack of knowledge about them creates certain difficulties. When a restorer makes a decision, he should take into account degree of damage of the item, its structural conditions, the reversibility of the used methods and materials. One must note, that small museums do not have the luxury of having their own restorer and conservator, who will be able to assess the risks, develop recommendations and then take effective measures to prevent or at least mitigate the disastrous consequences. Therefore, effective communication between the museums and organizations that can provide advice and make any recommendations on conservation is of an essential character.
