The booklet gives a short overview of the decades of conservation-restoration work and research of the complex of St. Mary’s Benedictine Convent in Zadar.
The brochure was issued marking the anniversary of the founding of the former Conservation Institute of Croatia in 1966. The Laboratory for Conservation Research was set up as part of the Institute. Devised and organized as a research department for chemical, mineralogical and physical investigations, its task was to examine the condition of monuments and sources of their degradations.
