The International Preservation Studies Center (formerly known as the Campbell Center for Historic Preservation Studies) is one of the top international destinations for practical, hands-on training in collections care, historic preservation, and conservation refresher. Over the past 38 years, the Center has positioned itself as a leader in the field of preservation, offering over 75 short courses and workshops to meet the training needs of cultural heritage professionals around the world. Our instructors are working professionals in the field who provide our participants with their expert instruction in best practices.
Founded in 1980, IPSC has evolved from a small center designed specifically for historic preservation training, to one of the leading training organizations for museum professionals, librarians, archivists, conservationists, and historic preservationists.
"The professional development that one gains from the International Preservation Studies Institute is immeasurable, and the courses are FUN!"
Anna Pivoras - Executive Director, Boone County Historical Society
