"Those 'pests' in collections:  Control of insects and fungi in
cultural institutions.
May 21-23

    Still today, insects and fungi remain an important cause of
    deterioration for several different materials found in the
    collections of cultural institutions. Traditionally control
    methods involving mostly biocides were used to manage insects
    and fungi.  Nowadays, most cultural institutions prefer to use
    safer products and varied control measures better adapted to
    their needs.  Modern technology now offers a wide variety of
    products and methods for the control and monitoring of insects
    and fungi, which professionals in the field must know in order
    to tackle the problem in an adequate and safe manner.

The workshop will consist of both practical exercises and lectures
on the latest developments in the field of insect and fungi control,
as they relate to the needs of those working in cultural

All the practical sessions will be given in English only.
Simultaneous translation between English and French will be offered
for all the lectures.

Practical sessions:

    *   Identification clinic for insects and fungi found on
        collections.  Examination of different artifacts and
        documents that have been infested.  Identification of
        specific damage by different species.

    *   Demonstration of the use of some of the most recent
        trapping, monitoring and control methods, (pheromones,
        anoxic fumigation and freezing treatments). Presented by:

            Tom Strang, Canadian Conservation Institute
            David Pinniger, Central Research Laboratory, UK
            Maheu & Maheu Inc.

Lectures will be given by several Canadian and international experts
on the latest developments in the field, on case studies and the
latest research on the subject. The Keynote Speaker at the workshop
will be David Pinniger, Research Entomologist, Central Science
Laboratory, Ministry of Agriculture of the United Kingdom.

Note that places are still open for lecturers at the
workshop.  We would be most interested to hear from people with
interesting case stories or with significant new development in
the field of insect and mould control.  If you are interested in
