Workshop on environmental monitoring

From: Ann Craddock <ccaha>
Date: Wednesday, September 13, 1995
The Conservation Center for Art and Historic Artifacts is sponsoring
a one-day environmental workshop, "Instituting a Conservation
Environment Monitoring Program," in Farmington, CT, on Monday,
November 13, 1995.  A registration fee of $50.00 includes a box
lunch and materials.  The workshop is partially funded by the
National Endowment for the Humanities.

The 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.

This 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:  Thomas E. Newbold, Vice President of Landmark Facilities
Group, Inc., a consulting and engineering firm in East Norwalk, CT,
will conduct the workshop on Monday, November 13, from
10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at Hill-Stead Museum, 35 Mountain Road.
