Reflecting the increased interest in training in conservation throughout the world, the 1994 International Directory of Training in Conservation of Cultural Heritage lists 30 percent more programs than the previous edition. This fifth edition of the directory also contains an easy-to-read international coding system and a complete subject index for easier use.

Compiled, updated, and printed as a joint venture of the International Centre for the Study of Preservation and Restoration of Cultural Property (ICCROM) and the Getty Conservation Institute, the directory is designed to provide information on a wide variety of training opportunities at different levels and in various fields of conservation and restoration worldwide. The different types of programs include specialized multiyear courses leading to a degree, short-term courses for specialists, as well as conservation courses offered within programs leading to degrees in other fields. Entries are arranged alphabetically by country and, within each country, by city.
