From: Ann Craddock <ccaha>
Date: Monday, August 14, 1995
The Conservation Center for Art and Historic Artifacts (CCAHA), with
partial funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities, is
sponsoring a one-day environmental workshop, "Instituting a
Conservation Environment Monitoring Program," in Philadelphia, PA,
on Thursday, September 14th, at the Historical Society of
Pennsylvania, 1300 Locust Street, from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Workshop Information

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

The workshop 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.

Speaker: William P. Lull, Principal and Senior Conservation
Environment Consultant at Garrison/Lull Inc., Princeton, NJ, and
