On the 17th of June 2016, SEAHA doctoral student Hend Mahgoub will present her research  in a talk at the conference of the Institute of Conservation entitled “Turn and Face the Change: Conservation in the 21st Century” in Birmingham. Hend’s topic focuses on scientific characterization of materials properties of Islamic paper and she will present a new non-destructive spectroscopic technique for surveying of Islamic paper based on Near Infrared (NIR) spectroscopy. This has shown the potential of developing evidence-based preservation policies tailored to Islamic libraries and archives.
