Collection care icons

Designed for use in the British Library reading rooms, these icons have been used extensively in leaflets and posters. We are now sharing these icons under a creative commons license, so that heritage organisations can incorporate them into their own collection care posters, guidance and leaflets, free of charge.

To order image files please email blpac@bl.uk identifying which icons you require.
