Join the IRUG Community

Participation is open to all individuals who actively use and maintain a serious interest in IR or Raman spectroscopy for the technical analysis of cultural heritage property. IRUG conferences are attended by scientists, conservators, educators, students, and individuals from academia and industry.

Anyone may search our spectral database to view and print spectra. Not-for-profit institutions/individuals contributing ten or more accepted spectra or reference materials gain access to digital spectra. Register online to create your account. Registrations are reviewed by the Board of Directors. Once your account is approved, you will be able to log in from anywhere in the world to conduct transactions.

Take part in the ongoing effort to build the spectral database. Archive your spectra with IRUG, share them with colleagues and preserve them for use by future generations. For more information, contact the chairperson for your region.
