    NYU Conservation Environment Workshops - Spring 1997

    The following workshops will be offered March 3-5, 1997, as part of the
    Building and Construction Seminar Series at the New York University Real Estate
    Institute.  They are a series of separate one-day seminars from 9am to 5:30pm.
    The topics are selected to be practical and useful in planning and managing
    collection environments, and are intended for museum, library and archives
    professionals, such as conservators, curators, archivists, registrars and
    directors, as well as for architects, engineers and others involved in
    construction and facilities management for collections-holding institutions.

    Conservation Environments for Museums and Libraries

        March 3, 1997; $185.  This seminar discusses the issues
        involved in establishing safe "conservation" environments
        for preservation of museum, library and archive collections.
        Environmental goals are discussed for humidity, temperature,
        lighting, particulate control, gaseous contamination, and
        collection safety.  Solutions to typical situations and
        problems are discussed for HVAC, lighting and building
        envelopes, including precautions to take in the design,
        construction and operation of conservation environments.
        Low-cost as well as fully-financed improvements are

    Fundamentals of Conservation Environment Lighting

        March 4, 1997; $185.  This seminar will discuss the issues
        involved in planning, designing and maintaining practical
        and effective conservation environment lighting in museums,
        libraries and archives.  Applications for display and
        storage/stack lighting will be discussed, including typical
        calculations, light sources and equipment.  In-class
        demonstrations and light measurements will be made using
        typical light sources and measurement equipment.

    Planning and Programming Museum, Library and Archive Projects

        March 5, 1997; $185.  Lecture, slides and case studies
        discuss essential elements in planning and programming an
        expansion, renovation or new building for a museum, library
        or archive.  Topics include: space needs assessment, storage
        and display space efficiencies, space adjacency needs and
        conflicts, entry and daylighting implications, shipping and
        collections access, environmental needs and systems,
        lighting, setting construction budgets, and justifying
        environmental improvements.
