Workshop on environment

From: Helen Corr <ccaha>
Date: Tuesday, August 13, 1996
The Conservation Center for Art and Historic Artifacts and the
Virginia Historical Society, The Center for Virginia History, are
co-sponsoring a one-day environmental workshop, "Instituting a
Conservation Environment Monitoring Program," in Richmond, VA on
Thursday, September 19, 1996.  The workshop is partially funded by
the National Endowment for the Humanities.

The workshop is intended for library, archives, 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 is a principal and senior conservation
environment consultant at Garrison/Lull Inc. and is Adjunct
Associate Professor of Building Technology at New York University.
He consults with libraries, archives, and museums on establishing
and maintaining a conservation environment for renovations,
expansions, systems improvements, and new facilities.  He has been
an invited lecturer for many university, professional, and
state-sponsored training programs.  Mr. Lull is active in many
professional organizations, including ASHRAE and AIC, and has
published several articles on conservation environment issues in
building construction.

A registration fee of $50.00 includes a box lunch and materials. The
registration deadline is: Wednesday, September 11, 1996. For further
