Metamorfoze programme

for the preservation of paper heritage

The UvA Conservation and Restoration of Cultural Heritage Department is an official partner of the Metamorfoze Research Programme, situated in the National Library (Koninklijke Bibliotheek) in The Hague.

The programme is an initiative of the Dutch Ministry of Education, Culture and Sciences (OCW) and is the national programme for the preservation of paper heritage since 1997. A major activity of the Metamorfoze Programme is to finance preservation projects, in particular projects with a focus upon material of Dutch origin, scholarly libraries, regional historic centres and museums and research institutes, for example. The Metamorfoze Programme is coordinated by Bureau Metamorfoze, who also organise workshops, informative sessions and congresses, besides advising on the proposals and execution of the projects awarded.
