An increasing number of resources available about heritage conservation are the various videos from webinars and other events. For example, the NCC hosts the NCC Urbanism Lab – which the School students regularly attend (see Banner image above). A list of useful videos will be posted here soon.

The following is a compendium of key references in the heritage conservation field, with a particular focus on its development and evolution in Canada. It was initially compiled by the late professor Herb Stovel, who taught at the School from 2004 to 2012.

“The references may be understood to constitute the core elements of a professional’s heritage conservation library. Every working professional in this field should be familiar with most or all these sources at some level. This list as also used as the base for constructing reading lists for courses in the heritage conservation programme in the School (of Indigenous and) Canadian Studies. Any prospective student thinking about entering the heritage conservation programme of instruction at the Carleton School (of Indigenous and) Canadian Studies will find this list useful for consultation; equally all those working within the programme and the field will find it of great benefit. This list is never complete, and never a perfect reflection of changing circumstances and needs in the field, and undoubtedly also reflects the author’s personal biases and limitations. However, it is reviewed and updated on a regular basis to achieve the best balance possible for current and incoming students.” (Herb Stovel, 2010)
