Workshops on mold and pest control

From: Carol Dellios <cdellios>
Date: Wednesday, January 3, 1996
Does your organization have mold or pest troubles?  Attend our
upcoming SOLINET preservation workshops and learn how to tackle
these difficult problems.  On Monday, January 29th, 1996, the
Miami-Dade Public Library will host two half-day workshops, Attack
of the Giant Mold Spore and To Fume or Not to Fume. (For those who
will not be able to attend on the 29th, SOLINET will host these same
workshops on Friday, March 1st, at our Atlanta office--contact our
offices for further information.)

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 to 4 p.m.  Conducting
both workshops will be Dr. Michael Trinkley, Director of Chicora

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.)  A $10 discount is offered for
registrations received three weeks prior to the course date.

Eberhardt at 1-800-999-8558 ext 285.
