Workshop on mold and pest control

From: Carol Dellios <cdellios>
Date: Monday, May 1, 1995
Does your organization have mold or pest problems?  The University
of North Florida in Jacksonville is hosting two half-day SOLINET
preservation workshops on June 9, 1995.

Attack of the Giant Mold Spore: Simple, Safe Techniques to Recover
from a Mold Outbreak.

    This workshop focuses on what mold is, why typical treatments
    and cleaning efforts don't work, and how to avoid the problem.
    Several approaches to cleaning mold will be covered.

To Fume Or Not To Fume: Alternative Fumigation Techniques for
Museums, Libraries and Archives.

    This workshop provides a general introduction to fumigation,
    including common chemical fumigation techniques; impact of
    chemical fumigation on collections, pests and people; good
    reasons to avoid chemical fumigation; and a discussion of
    several alternatives to chemical fumigation.

The workshop on mold will be held from 9 a.m. to noon, with the
workshop on fumigation taking place from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Conducting both workshops will be Dr. Michael Trinkley, Director of
the Chicora Foundation.

The cost for both sessions is $85 for SOLINET members and $150 for
non-members.  The cost of a single session is $60 for SOLINET
members and $90 for non-members. (Any institution within Florida
qualifies for the member rate.)

Partial funding for these workshops has been provided by a grant
from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
