Workshop on environmental monitoring

From: Virgilia Rawnsley <ccaha>
Date: Tuesday, June 27, 1995
The Conservation Center for Art and Historic Artifacts (CCAHA), with
funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities, is
sponsoring two one-day environmental workshops, "Instituting a
Conservation Environment Monitoring Program," in Philadelphia, PA,
on Thursday, September 14, and in Farmington, CT, on Monday,
November 13, 1995.

The workshops are intended for library, archive, house museum, and
museum professionals, as well as for architects, engineers, and
staff involved in facilities management and design.  The workshops
will supply the technical background to develop support and
documentation for improving environmental conditions for long-term
preservation of cultural collections.

Both workshops will present the rationale, techniques, and equipment
used to monitor the critical environmental conditions for cultural
collections.  Ways to develop realistic methods to monitor humidity,
temperature, lighting, particulates, and gaseous contamination will
be discussed, including analysis and interpretation of
hygrothermograph data.  Various types of monitoring equipment will
be demonstrated and a useful packet of supportive information will
be provided.
